The Benton Charter Township Police Records Department is located in the former Township municipal building, the center doorway on Territorial Road. Our business office hours are from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM. After-hours need for an officer can be addressed by the use of the outside contact button located at the door at the west end of the building. Any message for the records department after hours can be left through the telephone system, extension #4, and will be forwarded to the records office the following morning. During our business hours we can supply the public with copies of accident reports and with other reports as needed for insurance or personal purposes. Reports of incidents other than traffic accidents will require a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA); FOIA request forms are available at the office between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM or can be accessed on-line. These forms may be presented to the records department in person or by mail; mail requests will be returned when payment is received. Reports of open or active investigations may or may not be immediately available, depending on the nature of the complaint (i.e. open pending trial, etc). See the chart below for current fees.
