Commish issues guidelines for cops to deliver accident reports
2013-03-01 14:42:19 | (0 Comments)
The Commissioner of Police has announced new measures to reduce the time it takes for the police to deliver accident reports to individuals and companies.
Police Commissioner Owen Ellington - File.
Commissioner Ellington says as of April 1, no more than two weeks should elapse between the time the application is made and when the report is ready for delivery.
He says where there is valid reason for delay in preparing a report, the Officer in charge of the respective Division must communicate this to the applicant.
Commissioner Ellington says the strict turnaround time has become necessary because motorists continue to experience inordinate delays in obtaining abstract reports on motor vehicle accidents from the police.
He is reminding motorists they must pay the applicable fee to the Collector of Taxes and obtain a receipt then take that receipt to the divisional headquarters in which the accident occurred and complete the prescribed application form.
The police are required to issue a receipt to the applicant and note the receipt number issued by the Collector of Taxes.
Commissioner Ellington says where persons experience difficulties in receiving accident reports, they should make a complaint to the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the JCF Operations Branch, via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 908-2319.
