1) How do I obtain a copy of a report?
Requests can be made through our records department at 320-732-7748 or by mailing a request to Todd County Sheriff’s Office at 115 3rd St. S, Long Prairie, MN 56347.
If you have been involved in an accident and your insurance company needs a copy, you may forward a copy to them, or they may obtain the report directly with an authorization signed by you.
Not all reports are public. We follow the Minnesota Data Practices Act as well as Minnesota Statutes concerning the release of records.
2) How do I obtain a copy of my driving record?
A driving record may only be released to the holder of the record. In other words, you may obtain only your own driving record, and not anyone else.
3) How do I check on the status of a case?
Generally speaking, it is best to contact the officer or investigator involved with your case. Contact our dispatch center at 320-732-2157. If the officer is not in, all have voice-mail where a message can be left for them.
4) How do I obtain a criminal history report?
We cannot run a criminal history throughout the state of Minnesota for employment purposes, however; generally convictions are public information.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension maintains a public web-site concerning criminal histories. Please check their web-site at: https://cch.state.mn.us
5) Are predatory offender names and addresses public information?
Level one and two offenders are not public information, however; level three offenders (the most serious) require a public hearing prior to moving into a community so you would have prior notification if a level three offender were to move to your location. The Todd County Sheriff’s Office regularly checks on predatory offenders to verify their address, employment, and vehicle information. The state also maintains a public web-site for ‘non-compliant’ offenders. If you suspect that someone is a predatory offender and is non-compliant, you may check the web-site at: https://por.state.mn.us
6) I am applying for a passport or other legal document, and need a statement from my local sheriff concerning my local criminal history. What do I do?
