Police Accident Reports, Incident Reports and Log Entries

All requests for accident reports, incident reports, or a log entry should be requested by completing a Records Request Form. Reports will not be released without the Chief’s authorization. 

There is a processing fee of $1.00 per page, which must be paid on the day you pick up the report.  The cost will be relayed to you when the Records Clerk informs you the report is ready to be picked up.  If paying by check or money order, please make it payable to the “Town of Plaistow”.   

For any requests that require photos or videos to be downloaded onto a memory stick and/or thumb drive, the requestor will be responsible for the cost of this device  Due to security concerns, the department cannot accept an external thumb drive or memory stick to download any records to.

Accident reports are only available to parties involved in the accident including the owner of a vehicle involved, operator or passenger of a vehicle involved, a pedestrian hit by a vehicle involved, or an owner of any property damaged as a result of the accident.

Face sheets ONLY for motor vehicle accidents will be given out at no cost.
