The Police Records Division handles public requests for reports. Crash Reports are free of charge if you visit the Records counter or you can access it through the online system.

The majority of requests are traffic accident (Crash) reports, or incident (Crime) reports. Crime Reports include all reports taken by the police department, in person or by telephone, other than a traffic accident.

Incident Reports

Incident reports are available at the Records Division located in the lobby of Police Headquarters, 6716 Six Forks Road between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can also obtain a report for a number of non-emergency crimes. Online reporting users will be able to print a temporary copy of their report immediately after it is submitted. Online submissions are reviewed by the department before a permanent report number is issued.
