Traffic accident reports can now be purchased online through Docview. Docview is an internet based application that makes traffic accident reports available to the public 24/7, usually within 72 hours of the accident. A convenience fee will be charged for this online service; however, these reports will still be available for purchase at the police station for the standard fee of $5.00.
