How To Obtain A Traffic Collision Report from the Bakersfield Police Department

Only individuals involved in the accident can request a police report. Parties authorized to request a report include drivers, passengers, owners of damaged property, and parents or guardians of underage parties. Parties can request a copy of a report in one of three ways: online, in-person, or mail. There is a $7 fee to process these requests; if you decide to submit your request online, you might be subjected to additional fees. Your checks must be made payable to the City of Bakersfield.

To request your report in person, visit the Bakersfield Police Department at 1601 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield, California 93301 at any time during 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  You can submit a request for a traffic accident online at any time through the BPD Records Request Form. The online form requires the following information:

  • Full name
  • Type of party (involved, authorized representative, insurance company, attorney)
  • Address
  • Email and phone number
  • Report number
  • Date of incident

You may provide additional information in the designated spaces, like date of birth, names of people involved, and additional descriptive information.

To request your report through the mail, you must send a written request to the BPD. Along with the payment of $7, you will need to include the following details: case number, date of the incident, names of parties’ involved and contact information.

 

Below is an example of what your written request for a report should consist of:
