The Little Rock Police Department is now making traffic accident reports -- you need them for your insurance claim -- available on-line. We just tested the link -- http://littlerockar.policereports.us/ -- and can report it works. The reports you'll find there were generated on or after March 15; it will cost you $12.50 to get a copy. That's pretty steep, but if you tend to exceed the speed limit whenever you get behind the wheel, at least you won't risk getting a ticket en route to getting your motor vehicle accident report. Press release on what you'll need to get the report on the jump. (Ignore the link on the press release.)

ACCIDENT REPORTS AVAILABLE ON-LINE
In an effort to improve our level of service to those citizens involved in motor vehicle accidents, the Little Rock Police Department has entered into an agreement with PoliceReports.US to implement a new on-line program for obtaining copies of traffic accident reports. This service will allow the public and their respective insurance companies the flexibility of receiving reports on-line and will eliminate the need to travel to the Police Department to get a copy of an accident report.
Effective immediately, accident reports generated on or after March 15, 2010, can be accessed through the City of Little Rock website at http://www.littlerock.org/CityDepartment/Police/. Once you are at the police homepage, click on Accident Reports. A link on this page will direct you to the on-line accident report database. A computer, printer, access to the Internet and a credit card or debit card to purchase copies of reports will be required.
To search for an accident report, you can use any of the following inford mation:
Date of accident
Name of driver
Location of accident
The Little Rock Police Department recommends that you allow a minimum of two working days after the accident has occurred before attempting to access the report. Some accidents may require additional time to process.
The on-line distribution of accident reports by the web will allow the Little Rock Police Department Records Section to be more efficient and provide the highest level of customer service. The cost of the on-line service is $12.50. Citizens will still have the option of going to the Police Department to pick up their reports if they prefer paying with a check or cash.
