Obtaining Copies of Police Reports
Anyone can obtain a copy of a police report that has been filed with the Gardner Police Department. If the report is a general information report, all information can be obtained. If the report is a Kansas State Offense report, only the front sheet(s) will be available to the public.
Criminal Arrest Reports fall under dissemination guidelines set by the State of Kansas. For information on report availability, please contact the Records Department.
