Traffic Accident Reports:
The Burlingame Police Department has partnered with PoliceReports.US to provide community members with the ability to obtain their traffic accident police reports online. The convenience fee for this is $5.00 per report. Additionally, there is $0.25 per page fee. If you are an involved party or insurance company representing the involved party, please follow the link below to PoliceReports.US and follow the directions to access your report.
To obtain a copy of a Crime report you must be listed on the report. An insurance company should reference their insured party, date and location of the crime. An attorney requesting a report needs to provide an authorization release signed by the party involved along with the date and location of the accident. If a crime report is active or under investigation it may NOT be available until the investigation and/or prosecution is complete.
Arrest reports are not immediately available as they are forwarded directly to the District Attorney’s office for prosecution. However, you can request a copy from the District Attorney’s office at (650) 877-5454. For information on an arrest report that has been adjudicated, follow the procedures listed above to contact Burlingame Police Department. If you need information on the disposition of a case that has been prosecuted contact the District Attorney.
Call 650-777-4100 prior to picking up copies of reports for status and availability.
