Reports that have been taken during the incident by the police are called offense reports or general offense reportsand can be viewed by clicking the “history of all GO reports” link. Aside from this service, one can also request for a police report from the police department. Requester must be an authorized person for the request to be processed. Fill out the Request for Report form; attach a certification, copy of any government-issued ID and check for processing fee.
Aside from the Police Department, one may also request for Santa Barbara county arrest records by visiting the Sheriff’s Office.
