Accident Report System

The Gerrish Township Police Department has entered into an agreement with iyeTek, LLC to place traffic accident reports on-line. PayPoliceTicket.com. Accident Report System was selected to serve as our traffic accident insurance and citizen request technology. What is PayPoliceTicket.com? PayPoliceTicket.com is an Internet based application that was developed to help law enforcement agencies and insurance companies manage and access traffic accident reports in a more efficient manner. Through the use of “cutting edge” online document management technology, you are now able to rapidly find and view an accident report immediately after being completed by the officer. No more waiting in line or mailing report request forms. Now you can access your reports over the Internet, 24 hours a day!

Like most law enforcement agencies across America, the Gerrish Township Police Department has been pursuing an alternative to the hardcopy reporting, storing, and servicing of report requests. The Gerrish Township Police Department concluded that the PayPoliceTicket.com system was the most stable and secure solution as a local accident repository for insurance and citizen report requests. The Gerrish Township Police Department wanted a system that was designed to do the following:

  • Allow multi-jurisdictional data sharing and searching
  • A comprehensive system to facilitate web accessible availability of accident reports for insurance companies, officers and citizens
  • Remove the police department from the billing and request fulfillment process
  • Provide officers and investigators access to accident information for all agencies on the system.

We are convinced internet viewing and printing will significantly reduce the time spent dealing with insurance agencies and citizens seeking copies of traffic accident reports. Police Chief Brian Hill noted: “It is our desire to provide a level of expediency to anyone wishing to view and print police reports in the convenience of their home or business, of which has not been available in this area before”. The Gerrish Township Police Department files many traffic accident reports yearly. Normally each accident report will contain two drivers. This means many individuals and or insurance companies request copies of reports.

This new on-line method will provide an alternative and more expedient method for obtaining the information they need.
