Once an accused is charged in court, he or his/her lawyer can request for copies of certain reports from the Police before the criminal proceedings. An example of these reports is the certified true copy of the Police report pertaining to the case. For other relevant documents, the accused or his/her lawyer may write to the Police to request for certified true copies. The Police can furnish copies upon request and payment of the requisite fees. This, however, is subject to the guidelines applicable to the Police for the release of such documents.
