Provision of Reports

Police Scotland handles requests from solicitors, insurance companies and individuals for road accident reports, and crime reports about property which has been damaged or stolen.

Fees apply to requests as detailed below. The relevant fee must be paid before staff can search for a report, or confirm that a report is available.    

With regard to Accident Reports, please note that the fee is a search fee and will not be refunded in the event no information is held. If an Accident Report is available the fee will cover both the search and the provision of the report.

No refund of fees or cancellations will be accepted after the administration and arrangement for a precognition has been completed by Records West.

Cheques should be made payable to Scottish Police Authority.
