Obtaining Police Reports

Does anyone know of a quick method of obtaining a police report? I found out that a police report on a crime I recently reported is ready. One of the officers at the original scene said I can go downtown and pick up a copy, but when I call police info, they say I can only have it mailed to me and it will take a minimum of 21 days to get to me. However, the suspects know I busted them and I need to get that police report now (not to mention the fact that posting the damned report will shut up the people who claim the incident never happened.)
Go to the police...
Walk into the station and ask for the report. If you get pushback then ask to speak to someone who can explain to you why it takes 21 days to mail a report to you that already exists in their files. Explain why you need the information ASAP. Be calm and reasonable with them and odds are they will help you out.
Brick through the window works for me.

Heheheh, your situation reminds me of that Happy Days episode where Richie was friends with some big rock star, and Richie told Fonzie and the gang that, yeah, he's my bud and i can hook us up with primo tickets, yo, and the rock star wanted to stay at Richie's home but he was all don't tell anybody, so all of Richie's friends thought he was a GD liar, and Richie got screwed on the tickets, and like the chick he was dogging totally blew him off, on account of her being a second-degree starfucker, but then during the concert, the big rock star gave massive props for Richie for being his bud by keeping it on the down low though it cost him his girl and grief from his so-called friends, and then everyone knew that Richie was true blue and they all loved Richie and lived happily ever after.

so the moral of the story is you need more friends like the Fonz.
The only time I had to get a police report, I just had to wait a week and then go in person to the station and get it. You give them the money, they print you off a copy on the printer and you're all done. The worst part is waiting in line and then watching them bust some guy for an active warrant right next to you and hoping to hell he isn't armed. Other than that, piece of cake.
