MAKING A REQUEST FOR PUBLIC RECORDS

- Assist the custodian of records in preserving public records; and
- Prepare guidelines that enable requestors to make informed requests.
Pursuant to the Public Records Law, the following person has been designated as the Records Access Officer (RAO) for the Holyoke Police Department.

To Obtain Crash Reports:
The Holyoke Police department has partnered with the website "BuyCrash.com" which will allow anyone involved in a reported crash within the City limits to obtain a copy of their crash report on-line.
In an effort to provide citizens and insurance companies with the ability to obtain accurate and affordable crash reports as quickly as possible, our crash reports are now available for purchase online. All online requests for crash reports can be made at BuyCrash.Comhttp://docview.us.com/.
BuyCrash.Com charges a nominal convenience fee for this service which is added to the cost of the report. Involved parties that do not wish to pay the convenience fee can still come to the police station and pay only the cost of the report.
