Records & Reports Requests

How can I get a background check done on myself?

Wayzata Police can do a local record check (Wayzata Police records only) and provide you with a written document containing the results of the search. Cost is $10 and the document is certified.

If you need a FULL criminal background check, you will need to contact the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA):
1430 Maryland Ave E,
St. Paul, MN 55106
Phone: 651-793-2400 

How can I obtain a copy of a Police Report?

If you were involved in an incident or are requesting a public report, you will need to fill out the Request for Access to Data form.

If you are a lawyer representing a party involved in an incident, your request should be made on your letterhead and a release form signed by your client should be attached.

If you are an insurance company representing an involved party, your request should be made on your letterhead and should clearly identify who your insured party is.

All requests can be either emailed to WayzataPD@wayzata.org, faxed to 952-404-5359, mailed, or dropped off at the Wayzata Police Department. Once the request form is received, we will process your request as soon as reasonably possible. The report will be released in compliance with Minnesota Data Practices Laws. If you have any questions, please contact police records at 952-404-5340.

How can I obtain my Minnesota driving record?

Where can I get a Minnesota State Accident Reporting form?
