Obtaining a Copy of a Police Report

Request Online

If you are involved in an accident, many times your insurance company will request a copy of the report themselves. If you also want a copy, the Vernon Hills Police Department has entered into an agreement with BUYCRASH to provide traffic accident reports online. Reports are accessible 24 hours a day. All convenience fees added to the cost of the report are directly credited to BUYCRASH.

Non-crash Reports

If you want a copy of a report for something other than a traffic accident, you will have to fill out a request form. Requests are subject to review by the Chief of Police or their designee.
