No more waiting at the precinct for your collision reports, New Yorkers.

According to the NYPD, a new portal that allows drivers involved in collisions throughout the city to obtain copies of their collision reports electronically and with no fee, launched last week and is making obtaining accident information much simpler for drivers. The portal was created as a result of legislation to simplify the process of getting report copies that was introduced by Brooklyn City Councilmember Chaim Deutsch.

“In recent years, the department has taken huge strides in the way we handle the basic report taking for collisions,” said NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill. “Instead of taking a paper form at the scene and then data entering the information at the command using an outdated computer program, officers can now take these reports electronically at the scene. The information becomes available and shareable much faster, which allows us to analyze it for public safety purposes and get copies to the affected parties faster and easier.”

According to the NYPD, collision reports taken after September 30, 2016 have been entered into the Collision Report Retrieval Portal, which is available online at collisionreport.nypdonline.org. To access a collision report, users follow a few simple steps to obtain a secure PIN which will then give them access to an electronic version of their report.
