In our continuing efforts to improve our service to the community, the Police Department has implemented a new on-line process for the public to obtain copies of accident reports. Citizens and insurance companies can now access reports via the Internet, eliminating the need to travel to the Police Department or request a report by mail.
Accident reports starting August 1, 2011, or after, can be accessed by clicking on-line service and Police Accident Reports, citizens will be able to purchase their accident report. Citizens can also go directly to: http://shawneeks.policereports.us to purchase their report. The cost of the accident report though PoliceReports.US is $8.00.
To search for a report, users can enter the full case number, the date of the accident, or the driver’s name. The report can be printed immediately from your computer. If you are searching for a report that is not on-line, you can call our Records Unit to inquire at (913) 631-2155, press 3. Generally, Records Staff will be able to web enable the report for you.
Electronic distribution of accident reports via the web will allow the Police Department to be more efficient while providing a higher level of customer service. The biggest users of accident reports are insurance companies. We spend a considerable amount of time mailing reports to insurance companies and processing their checks. We are offering the on-line services in an effort for make our services more convenient for the community. We will continue to offer the service of purchasing accident reports by coming to the Police Department located at: 5850 Renner Road Shawnee, Kansas 66217, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday for $4.00.
