Getting a Copy of Your Police Accident Report 

After an accident, you will want to obtain a Police Accident Report for evidence, which is a compilation of the Investigating Officer’s findings. This report is filed electronically, and your participation is required to get a copy. There may be notations listing the contributors to the accident. A diagram or drawing might also be included, to show the point of impact and any visible damages to vehicles involved.
