Online Copy of Traffic Crash Report
Traffic accident reports may also be obtained through an online service via Michigan State Police called Traffic Crash Purchasing System. TCPS is an Internet based application that helps citizens and insurance companies access traffic accident reports in a more efficient manner.
You can download and print a copy of the report without having to contact the police department in which the collision occurred. The requester benefits from the easy access to reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
You will need the date of the crash, and either information about a driver involved in the crash or a crash report form number.
