Ardmore Police Department’s Records Section does not currently charge for one copy of a collision or other report.

Ardmore Police Department Records Section provides local background checks, but cannot run a state criminal history check .

If you need the requested information by a specific date or deadline, please make your request well in advance.

Due to situations beyond our control, we are not always able to deliver the requested report within a few hours or on the same day, which depends on the request and other external factors.  We always try to be expedient, but do not always have time to process the numerous requests we receive right away.

We look forward to serving you...
