How do I obtain a copy of an accident report?

If you are involved in an accident, within the city limits of Jackson, call the police to have the accident investigated. Accident reports are available 7 to 10 business days after the incident has been reported. Copies of Accident can be obtained online or at the Jackson Police Department. In most cases the report is released to you that day, if it has been approved. It is advisable to call ahead to see if the report is ready for release.
