The Arkansas State Police is the statutory repository of motor vehicle crash investigation records. These records are available to the public and copies may be obtained from the state police. A statutory fee of $10 must be collected for each copy of any single report. All requests must be accompanied by a signed request packet Crash Records Request Packet (click here for an electronic copy) and the Authorization to Release Form (click here for authorization release form).
The records of crash investigations prepared by a local or county law enforcement agency contained within the state police repository are duplicates of those records routinely available at the department where the report was initially generated. Typically the Arkansas State Police reports are available at troop headquarters within three to five working days after a crash is investigated by an Arkansas State Trooper. To locate the appropriate troop headquarter information with the county where the accident occurred, hover over and select an area on the state map below.
Once a report has been checked for accuracy by a trooper's supervisor, the document is forwarded to the crash records repository at Little Rock administrative headquarters and can be ordered in most cases within 30 days of the report being completed.
Requests for copies of the reports can be mailed to the following address:
Arkansas State Police
Attn: Crash Records Section
One State Police Plaza Drive
Little Rock, Arkansas 72209
