Is the case open still or is the case closed out?

The case is still open

I filed a restraining order for my business against an individual. The court granted my request. I obtained a copy of the police report, the only problem is the police department redacts all of the necessary information in order to serve the defendant. I would like to know the proper form to use in order to subpoena the police department records in order to properly serve the defendant.

So, if the case is still open you need to go to court in the restraining order case and you need to ask the clerk to issue a subpoena to the police department for "unredacted records" showing the address of the accused. The clerk will issue a subpoena to you which you then have to serve on the police department records room.

If you just serve a subpoena asking for records, you will get redacted records again, so you need to specify you are seeking UNredacted records.

Your other option, if he was arrested, is get the clerk at the court to check his arrest record in the court computer as they may have his address there as well.
