Fee Schedule for Police Reports
Obtaining Crash Reports
Crash reports can be purchased by mail request, at the records counter downtown (see fee schedule) or you may purchase the report online through a private vendor site at www.tnbuycrash.com
NOTE: BUYCRASH.com is not associated with the Metro Police Department. They are a private company that provides another option for citizens to use for purchasing a traffic report on-line. Note: The fee they charge for utilizing their system is not the same as the records department. We have no control over the fees they implement. If you encounter any issues with this private vendor site you will need to contact them directly, not the Metro Police Department Records Division, as we are not associated with this company or the fees they charge. Please direct your concerns to them by going to their website or calling them directly at 866-495-4206
