How to Obtain Your Folly Beach Police Accident Report

A Police Accident Report contains important evidence you will want to retain; a compilation of the Investigating Officer’s findings. This report will be filed electronically, requiring your participation to get a copy. There may be notations listing contributors to the accident. A diagram or drawing may also be included, to visually define the point of impact and visible vehicle damages.

The Records Division of the Folly Beach Department of Public Safety has provided us with the following details and points of contact to assist in the acquisition of your Police Accident Report. You will find specific instructions within the In Person and By Mail sections.

There is a $5.00 fee per copy of the Police Accident Report, which will be waived for residents if your valid ID has a Folly Beach address. The request may be downloaded and mailed as directed, or you may complete it in person

At the time of your request, you may be asked to provide a Freedom of Information Act FOIA Request Form. You may download Folly Beach FOIA form and mail it in as instructed, or you can submit the online FOIA form. Uninvolved parties may only be allowed a redacted copy (at the discretion of the Records Officer).
