ACCIDENT and INCIDENT VERIFICATION REPORTS
Individual accident reports are one of our most frequent requests.  In addition to requesting these reports in person, over the phone, or in writing, it is also possible to request them on line, and you can receive the accident report by fax, email, regular mail, or in person.  

Incident Verification Reports can be requested in all the same ways as an accident report, but can only be picked up in person, as it requires identity verification.

ATTENTION ATTORNEYS AND DEFENDANTS REPRESENTING THEMSELVES: Our On-Line Request Feature is Not To Be Used For Discovery Requests-Discovery Requests Must Be Done In Writing, and sent to JTPD by either Regular Mail, Email, Fax, or Courier/Hand Delivery.  Thank You For Your Cooperation.
