Gaffney Police Accident Reports

Essential evidence will always be included on a Gaffney Police Accident Report, (which is a compilation of on-the-scene findings by the Investigating Officer). This report is filed electronically and is available 3-5 business days after the accident. The report will include a narrative as well as a diagram showing the point of impact and visible vehicle damages.

Reports are only provided to individuals directly involved in an accident. We do not provide reports to third parties such as attorneys, or insurance carriers.

How to Obtain Your Gaffney Police Accident Report

The Gaffney Police Department Records Unit has verified the following details and points of contact to acquire your Gaffney Police Accident Report. You will find specific instructions within each method-of-access section below.

In Gaffney, there is a $5.00 request fee for Police Accident Reports for involved parties as well as uninvolved parties. The fee must be paid in cash if you are visiting the department in person, and by money order (payable to Gaffney Police Department) at the address given in the By Mail section.

Uninvolved parties are generally asked to provide a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Form along with their request. This form is available at the Records Unit, or you may download an FOIA from the SC DPS and enclose it with your mailed request. Note: Uninvolved parties may only be allowed a redacted copy at the discretion of the Records Officer.  

Note: For Interstate accident reports, see specific instructions to request your report from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles in the By Mail section.
