Colorado Springs Police Department

Police Accident Reports

The Colorado Springs Police Department maintains accident reports of traffic accidents that are investigated by Colorado Springs Police Department officers. Cold accident reports—accident reports that are completed by drivers who are involved in minor accidents and a Colorado Springs Police Officer did not investigate the accident. The Record Section maintains accident reports on file for 120 days. After 120 days a citizen may make a request for an accident report by contacting the Colorado Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division, in Denver, CO.

Required Information to obtain an Accident Report:
The accident report number OR the driver(s) name, the location and the date of the accident.

What the citizen will receive:
A copy the accident report, which includes the driver(s) information, insurance information, narratives written by the investigating officer, drivers statements, witness statements and any follow-up by traffic investigators.

What the citizen will NOT receive:
Any traffic accident report that is under investigation that may result in criminal charges.

If the report cannot be provided to the citizen: If it is determined that the accident is no longer on file with the Record Section or cannot be released, all fees will be refunded, and the citizen requesting the report shall be notified accordingly.
