Records Division and Accident/Police Reports

The Records Department of the Hampton Police Department is responsible for the following areas: Routing phone calls; filing and retrieving completed incident / accident reports and handgun purchase permits; local records checks and other assigned duties. CPL permit applications may be obtained from the Hampton Township Police Department.

Incident / Accident Reports:

Completed and Closed Accident and Incident reports may be obtained from Hampton Township Police Records Department during normal working hours. The fee for these reports is $8.00 for the first page and $.25 for each additional page. Fee for pictures is $2.50 per page. It is best to check with the Records personnel on the availability of the report before coming in for a copy. 
Reports from investigations that are not complete and reviewed by the prosecutor may not be released. If the prosecutor issues a warrant on a police report/complaint the report may then be obtained from the prosecutor's office. The telephone number for the Bay County Prosecutor's Office is 989-895-4185.

Requests for Police Assistance

* If you have an emergency, call 911 to have the closest available unit sent.
* Calls for police assistance that are not considered an emergency should also go to 911. Central Dispatch will send the next available unit.
* If you have a question for a police officer or for records personnel call 989-892-0571. After normal office hours you will receive a message directing you to leave a message. You may leave a message for records personnel. In that case someone will respond to the message on the next business day. If you leave a message for a particular officer they will not respond to the call until they report for their next duty day.
There are normally one to three Hampton Officers on patrol within Hampton Township at any time. In addition to Hampton Police officers patrolling township streets, the Bay County Sheriff's Deputies and Michigan State Police occasionally patrol and respond to calls for police assistance within the Township.
If you call for Police assistance and are not able to wait for a Hampton officer, you may request that a Sheriff's Deputy or a State Police officer be sent to respond to requests for police assistance.
