Accident reports now available on internet

B y Derek Liebig

 

The next time you’re involved in a fender bender inWhitehall, you’ll find it a little easier to receive your accident report.

The Whitehall Police Department recently entered into an agreement with the company  PoliceReports.us, to provide a database to house Motor Vehicle Accident reports completed by the local police department.

“It should make it easier for residents involved in accidents to get a copy of the report without having to travel to the police department,” Officer Tim Hardy said.

The new system will also reduce the number of administrative tasks members of the department have to perform allowing them to concentrate on more important tasks.

Drivers and auto-insurance providers will be able to access accident reports by visiting the department’s website online and clicking on the “Purchase Accident Reports Online” tab.

That tab will redirect them to a secure site where they will input some basic information that will be used to pull their specific report.

The cost of the service is $4 plus any the standardVillageofWhitehall Accidentfee that applies to all report requests.

Accident reports will typically be available within five business days from the time the accident report was completed by the responding officer.

The online reports will be available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Reports will still be available at the Police Department, Monday through Friday,6 a.m. to 2 p.m.as well.
