Your right to obtain police reports and records is  based on the U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). FOIA is legislation that comprises laws that guarantee access to data held by each state. They establish a "right-to-know" legal process by which requests may be made for government-held information to be received freely or at minimal cost, barring standard exceptions.

U.S. Crime Stats

In the United States of America, the government keeps records of all types of crime statistics by state, category, age group, and much more by different government agencies and makes them available to the general public. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) publishes crime stats annually and represents crimes reported to the police. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BOJ) represents crimes not reported to the police in their annual National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).

Studies show that the likelihood of committing a crime or becoming a victim of one depends largely on several demographic characteristics as well as location. Cities naturally have more crime because of the density of population. Men, minorities, younger citizens, and the financially burdened are more likely to become victims as well as being the ones who commit them due to the fact that less affluent people generally live in poorer neighborhoods that are more susceptible to a higher crime rate. America's crime rate is determined by the number of offenses being reported per 100,000 people.
