Fee Schedule (Reports & Impounds)
The Avon Police Department maintains a number of public records available to the general public. In compliance with state statutes that govern the fees associated with these records, the Town of Avon has established a fee schedule. Please note that all payments must be made in exact money order or cashier's check. Effective October 1st 2016, the Town of Avon has adopted a no-cash handling policy for the Avon Police Department. Fees may be paid by money order or via debit/credit card transactions for the following fees ($3 bank fee is assessed for each card transaction):
Accident Reports - $10
If you are looking to obtain an accident report, remember that officers have three working days to complete their report. Officers typically complete reports at the end of their shift, but occasionally if additional information is needed or if the investigation is pending, accident reports may not be immediately available.
Accident reports are not required by state law if there is less than $1,000 in damages, no one is injured, and drivers have exchanged pertinent information. Accident reports can be obtained 24 hours a day from the State of Indiana by using a credit or debit card at the BuyCrash website for $12.
Background Investigation - $7
Local records checks/background investigation reports are available from our agency. The records check will include a regional review of any criminal activity on the individual in question as well as an exhaustive review of our agency records. A brief narrative and copies of any relevant documents are included in the final report.

Vehicle Impound Release - $25
Vehicles impounded by the Avon Police Department for enforcement action require a formal release by the Avon Police Department to ensure compliance with state law. Vehicle releases are only processed during regular business hours at the Avon Police Department administrative building between 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday. The registered owner of the underlying vehicle must be present to process the release. Registered owners should be prepared for the following:
- Be able to prove ownership of the vehicle by presenting a valid registration for the vehicle.
- Be able to prove your identity with proper photo identification.
- Be able to provide proof of financial responsibility for the impounded vehicle.
In the event that the vehicle was impounded as a result of a suspended driver, you must be accompanied by 2 licensed drivers, who must present their valid driver licenses (one licensed driver to have driven you to our station and one to operate the impounded vehicle).
Depending on the nature of the underlying impound, additional documents may be required at the discretion of the Avon Police Department.
Law Enforcement Recordings - $150
In the event of the existence of a law enforcement recording (such as an in-car video recording file), copies of the video may be available for public release. Depending on the status of any investigation, such law enforcement recordings may be eligible for release. This rate has been established/approved by the State of Indiana.
