Use of Records to obtain information for solicitation:

C.R.S. 24-72-305.5(1) Records of official actions and criminal justice records and the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and other information in such records shall not be used by any person for the purpose of soliciting business for pecuniary gain. The official custodian shall deny any person access to records of official actions and criminal justice records unless such person signs a statement which affirms that such records shall not be used for the direct solicitation of business for pecuniary gain.

Important Note: 
Some cases may not be authorized to be released by the APD Records Section due to the disposition of the case. For example, cases that are open and are still being actively investigated cannot be released until the case has achieved some type of disposition or authorization is received from the investigating Detective. Also, in some instances, report requests must be directed to the responsible District Attorney’s Office (17th/18th Judicial District) for release.
