reportIf you have been injured and do not yet have an attorney call one now to see if you need their assistance. I am an experienced Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyer who will provide you with a free consultation.

To get a police report for a car accident in Los Angeles, follow these steps.

You or your attorney will send a check or money order for $24 made payable to “LAPD”.

Include with the payment:

  • The date and location of the car accident, and names of people involved (if known)
  • The type of report (This is “Traffic report” for car accident)
  • The report (DR) number (if known)
  • The vehicle license number (if known)

Note:

  • Attorneys requesting a car accident report should include a release (this is a paper your attorney will obtain from you releasing them to act on your behalf).
  • Insurance companies requesting a report should include the insurance policy number.

Mail your request to:

Los Angeles Police Department
Records and Identification Division
Document Processing Unit
