Investigative Reports

The Doylestown Township Police Department does not release police investigative reports to the public without a court order. Investigative reports resulting in a criminal investigation are exempt from disclosure under the Act 3 of 2008 Pennsylvania’s Right To Know Law. For those citizens who need a report for insurance or other purposes, the Department can issue a Uniform Investigative Report (U.I.R.) Letter – which is a summation of the report that indicates the incident was reported to the Department. There is a $15.00 fee for the U.I.R. Letter.


Accident Report (Traffic crash)

Copies of accident reports are available at the Department during normal business hours. There is a $15.00 fee for a basic report, or a $100.00 fee for a traffic crash reconstruction report. If photographs were taken by the department, they are available for purchase at $15.00 each.
