    There are several factors which affect whether you can obtain official police reports of suicides. Was the report of an attempt or is the person deceased? Is the case currently under investigation? Police reports are generally public record unless they've been sealed or still under an ongoing investigation. When a public record is denied, you will get a reply stating the reason for the request being turned down. (Staff)
  • How do I search a court record by case number?
    Enter the case number in the court search form's "Keyword" box above (which searches both words and numbers). You do not need to enter the entire case number since it's a general keyword search. You can search as many times as needed as it's open to the public freely. It is a good preliminary search that helps when looking for case information. (Staff)
