Public Records Requests

You can initiate a public records request with the Greenfield Police Department through NextRequest.


  • Records may not be immediately available. Under Massachusetts Public Records Law c. 4, § 7, the Greenfield Police Department has 10 business days to respond to requests. For complex requests, the initial response may only be an estimate of fees required to process that request. After payment is made, it can take up to 10 more business days to provide the records for that request.
  • All requests are subject to approval by the chief of police.
  • Records may be requested online (preferred), in person, or via USPS mail. Telephone requests cannot be accepted.
  • We release records considered public, while applying exemptions required by law to protect personal privacy and public safety.
  • Exempted material may include, but may not be limited to:
    • Cases under investigation.
    • Criminal records protected by CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) statute.
    • Cases involving juveniles (under age 18).
    • Information indicating the ownership or location of firearms.
    • Information regarding an individual's health issues (HIPAA).
    • Confidential witness, victim, or informant data.
    • Social Security numbers, dates of birth, phone numbers, etc.
    • Information that could compromise public safety or effective law enforcement.


  • The majority of our calls for service do not require a written report and are documented with a simple entry in our police logs. 
  • Daily logs are public information (with legal exemptions). Press Logs are a slightly modified version of our police logs which are readily available. They typically encompass the last 24 to 72 hours and may be reviewed at GPD anytime, free of charge upon request. Please allow our staff time to print the logs.
  • Press logs made immediately available for public inspection must remain in the station at all times.
  • Full daily police logs or complex requests for multiple entries are subject to the 10-business-day work time allotted by Massachusetts Public Records Law and legal exemptions.
