Melrose Police Department Partners with CARFAX to Offer Free Crash Reports Online
MELROSE–Chief Michael Lyle is pleased to announce that the Melrose Police Department has partnered with CARFAX to offer free crash reports to residents and business owners online.
Community members who are involved in a motor vehicle crash in Melrose, where a police officer arrives on scene to take a report, can access that document online at crashdocs.org. (Or visit the Melrose Police Department’s Traffic Division page to access the link and a set of directions here).
The online resource will allow community members to save time by obtaining reports online instead of calling or making a trip to the station.
“We are always looking for ways to better serve our community,” Chief Lyle said. “The purpose of this free service is to prevent residents and business owners from having to make an unnecessary trip to the police department. It’s always nice to give people the opportunity to have resources at their fingertips.”
Members of the community, however, can always go to the Melrose Police Station to obtain a crash report.
In addition to the new crash report distribution platform, Melrose Police Officers will also have access to a wide variety of CARFAX investigative resources to help to assist the Melrose Police Department with combating crime more efficiently and effectively.
