Citizen Crash Reports

Beginning Aug. 1, regardless of the weather and road conditions, the SPD will respond to motor vehicle crashes in a similar manner as when it is in emergency status.
Citizens involved in motor vehicle crashes are instructed to exchange information with other drivers involved and make a Citizen crash report as long as all involved vehicles are operable, there are no injuries present, and none of the involved drivers are alcohol or drug-impaired.
The time saved will additionally allow the SPD’s patrol officers to focus on identified crime trends in their areas of responsibility, and they will have more time to locate and arrest wanted subjects, respond to community complaints, conduct traffic and DWI enforcement activities, and interact with the community.
