Accident Reports

Copies of Traffic Accident Reports filed through the Lorain Police Department are available online at THIS LINK.  If you filed your report through another police agency, please contact that agency to obtain copies of your report.


In order to locate a report you must have one of the following:

  • County of accident
  • The date of the crash
  • Driver’s last name
  • Jurisdiction (Law Enforcement agency that handled the report)

Reports generally take 3 to 5 business days to process before they are available for download.  If after 5 days the report you are looking for is still not available for download, please contact our records section at (440) 204-2114.


Please note, if your crash occurred on private property and not on a public roadway you may come to the Lorain Police Department or email lpdrecordsrequest@cityoflorain.org to retrieve a copy of your report.  Private property accident reports are not available through this online service.
