All subpoenas are accepted at the Nassau County Police Department Accident and Aided Section
Monday - Thursday 8:30 A.M. until 5:00 P.M.
Friday - 8:30 A.M. until 4:45 P.M.

When judicial subpoenas are served for personal appearances we will determine the employment status of the department member being served.  Fees vary as to the location of the court and mileage; therefore we will determine the appropriate fee at the time of service.  Payment may be made by cash or a business check made payable to the officer requested to appear.  The personal subpoena is only used to insure the presence of the officer requested.   

A subpoena Duces Tecum for documents must be so-ordered and signed by a judge and is required to obtain any and all police records. The fee is $15 payable by a postal money order or a business check. The Police Department requires twenty-four (24) hours notice on all subpoenas Duces Tecum.  We would appreciate as much notice as possible so that we may better accommodate all requests.  The police records will be sent directly to the requesting court.  A subpoena Duces Tecum cannot be used to command both the appearance of the officer and police records.  We need a personal subpoena for the officer to appear and a separate subpoena Duces Tecum, so ordered and signed by a judge, for police records.
