How To Obtain A Traffic Collision Report from the Lancaster/Palmdale County Sheriff’s Offices

Sheriff’s Offices allow you to obtain copies of traffic accident reports in the same way that city police departments do. The Lancaster and Palmdale offices have various details attached to asking for these reports, however. In general, if you have any questions, you should either contact the clerk at the Records Division of the respective department, or consult with one of our attorneys at Normandie Law Firm.

Request Details
With traffic collision reports, the documents can only be released to those who have legal authority to receive them. This means that those involved in the traffic accident directly, such as drivers, injured pedestrians, passengers, and opposing drivers can request copies; additionally, representatives of these individuals can do so as well. Attorneys and lawyers, as well as insurance agents, are able to request the documents provided they have proper authorization from the client and a letter of intent.

The reports can be requested in one of two ways.

In Person: You can come into the department and request a file in person. You should be prepared to have your identification ready, as well as any details about the crash. A report number will facilitate and expedite the process. The department is open during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

By Mail: You may request a copy of the police report through the mail as well. This allows you to skip the long lines and conveniently have the document mailed to your home. Your request should include your personal information (name, date of birth, address, etc), a copy of valid identification (passport, driver’s license, etc), and a request letter.

There may be varying fees depending on what kind of report you want to receive. Check the website for more information on costs of the release of these documents.
