When it comes to your online presence and security, there are measures you should be taking to prevent your accounts from becoming compromised.
You should never share your password with anyone. This is vital to keeping your accounts (social media, email, banking and other financial apps) safely in your control.
You should make sure that your passwords are not simple and easy to guess. Creating a unique password for your accounts will deter people from accessing your accounts.
Many online accounts (including social media) will have a two-factor authentication option that you can enable. This will prevent other devices from logging into your account should your password become compromised.
You should always read the privacy and security section of any apps or accounts that you create to ensure that you are knowledgeable about any features they may offer to help keep your accounts safe.
If you find that one of your accounts have been compromised you should contact the customer service for that specific account. If you have any financial information tied or linked to that account, you should also contact the customer service or fraud department and report the compromise to them as well

You must first Request a Record with our records department. Please know that the officer who responded to your incident cannot do this for you. Records will need to hear from you in order to take your request.
You can fill out a request form online, or go into the Clifton Police Department and fill out a paper form during regular business hours. Town Hall must be open in order for you to request your report in person.
In-person requests: You will have to fill out a form with as much information as you can. Then you will have to go to the Clifton Town Hall and pay a $5 deposit fee. This fee will be applied to the cost of your request.
The Records Department will contact you with any questions or updated costs as soon as your request is next in line for processing. Please leave a valid phone number and make sure you have voicemail available for messages. Records will only call you once. That call is noted and then the clerk will move on to the next request.
The processing time for a standard police report is 7-10 business days. Processing time for other requests, such as police body-worn videos or extensive police reports varies on the content of the report or media, and is a longer processing time than what is considered “standard”. Records are processed in a first-come, first-served order for public requests. Public requests are defined as anyone requesting a record that does not have an investigative or prosecution need. Any requests from other Law Enforcement, DCS, or Prosecuting Agencies will not be considered a “public” request and will be processed first
You can have your report mailed to you, emailed to you, or a physical copy can be left for you to pick up. Please indicate which delivery option is best for you.
A processed report will only be kept for 2 weeks. If it is not picked up by then, it will be destroyed and you will have to start the process over again.
If you are requesting a public inspection of a record, that inspection will have to be scheduled with the records department.
All police records are redacted pursuant to public records law. The records department can identify what information is redacted and why it was redacted if you request that at the time of your public records request.
Please do not expect a record to be processed the same day. Unless the records clerk is on duty and you are requesting a call for service document, that will not happen.
Please do not call to check the status of your record prior to the 10 business days. This creates a workflow issue, as we have to stop processing to check on your record. It will only cause the wait time to increase for all requested records.
Please be aware that the Town of Clifton Magistrate Court will be reducing hours of operation.
The new hours of operation will be
7 am — 12 pm Monday—Thursday
Effective Monday October 24, 2022
Questions should be directed to the Clifton Magistrate’s Office at 928-865-4156.
