Police reports in Tennessee are public records and may be obtained by filing for a request, as stated by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. These reports are often available on the open records sections of the police departments' websites.
Some police departments, such as in Nashville, publicize several police reports, such as daily booking lists, current traffic accidents and interactive crime maps, according to Nashville.gov. The reports are available on the police department section of the city of Nashville's website. The Memphis Police Department, however, only releases police reports and public records upon request, as stated by MemphisPolice.org. The reports may also be obtained through Central Records, which is located in downtown Memphis.
