How do I get a copy of a report?

Accident Reports: The Glen Carbon Police Department has partnered with BuyCrash ( which is a website where you can obtain a copy of an accident report providing the accident occurred in Glen Carbon. There are 5 easy to follow steps once you have logged onto the website. For residents who do not have a computer, computer access is available in the lobby at the Police Department, the Village of Glen Carbon Library and the Senior Community Center. There is a $13.00 fee that can be paid with a debit or credit card. You must know the date of the accident, the report number (which is given to you at the time of your accident) and have a valid debit/credit to obtain a copy of the report.

Police Reports: Reports are available by request through our Records Division; Monday 10:00am - 6:00pm, Tuesday- Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm. Please contact Nicky Blockton at 288-2618. If you are unable to come between those times, you can contact the Records Division to make other arrangements. The per report fee is $5 and there is an extra charge if there are photos. You must also bring a photo ID. If you are not directly involved in the case or if it is a pending case, the report cannot be released unless it is requested by an attorney. Citizens can make a request for a report that they are not directly involved in by completing a FOI (Freedom Of Information) request form. These requests must also be completed in person and they have to be approved by the Chief Of Police.
