HOW CAN I GET A COPY OF A POLICE REPORT?

Please allow 2-3 weeks for some reports to be completed. You can call ahead to inquire about the availability of the report. Not everyone is entitled a copy of a report. We strongly recommend you call ahead to determine whether the report is complete and whether you are able to receive a copy. 
Here are the guidelines:

Crime reports w/o suspect- The victim or a person listed in the report may come into the office to obtain a copy of a report with valid ID. [ $10 ]

Crime report routed to the DA- The report will not be released until it has been adjudicated (ruled on) by the courts or by subpoena. [ $10 ]

Traffic collision report- An involved party or the registered owner of an involved vehicle may obtain a copy of the report. [ $10 ]

Property damage report- An involved party or the registered owner of an involved vehicle may obtain a copy of the report. [ $5 ]

HOW DO I REGISTER (COURT ORDER)?

State law mandates that all persons convicted of sex, drug, arson and gang offenses must register with their local law enforcement agency. Each time an arson, drug, or gang registrant moves into a new jurisdiction they are required to register with the new agency within 10 days. Sex offenders are required to register within 5 days. If a registrant moves within the same jurisdiction, they are required to report their change of address to that agency. When a registrant moves out of MPD’s jurisdiction they are required to come in to unregister. The “unregistration” notification must be done in writing. Only residents of the City of Marysville may register with the Marysville Police Department. In order to avoid unnecessary delays, registrants should verify they reside within the city limits.  

Wednesday only 11:00am - 3:00pm 
(No appointment necessary)

HOW DO I GET PROPERTY RELEASED?

For all evidence held in which a person has been arrested/cited, we must receive a District Attorney confirmation that the case is closed on all defendants. Sentencing must have occurred for a case to be closed. In some cases, the District Attorney may not release items immediately, pending further investigation or appeals. Upon closure of the case and receipt of necessary releases from the district attorney, an owner must pick up his/her property within 30 days. A friend or family member may not pick up another person’s property without a notarized release.

Property that has been held as safekeeping or found may have a city imposed release fee. The city only accepts cash for the release. There is never a charge to release evidence.

To retrieve a firearm that is in our possession, you must first complete a CA DOJ “Firearms Release From a LEA” application. You can obtain the application from the CA DOJ website. You must bring a locking box  when picking up a handgun.

In order to be helped in the most efficient manner, please bring your government-issued ID (CA driver license/ ID, military ID, or passport) along with your case number. If there are special circumstances regarding the pick-up of your property, please contact our office.

Wednesday only 11:00am - 3:00pm *Appointments made be made for other days. 
(by appointment only: call 530-749-3928)

HOW DO I GET AN ALARM PERMIT?

If you are planning to install, or currently have, an alarm system in your home or business, you must have a valid alarm permit on file with MPD. The cost of a residential or business alarm permit is $40.00 and is valid for one year. The Marysville Police Department only issues alarm permits to residents inside the city limits.  For further information and fees for false alarms, refer to Marysville Municipal Code Title 5 chapter 5.50 or contact City Hall.
