The Records Bureau maintains all police report files including original incident reports, traffic crash reports, and citations. If your insurance company asks for documentation of stolen or damaged property, the Records Bureau can supply you with a "Confirmation of Loss" letter to provide them. This letter, sent from the Police Department, documents the status of the property in question as recorded in the official police report.
For documentation of car crashes and accidents, MSU completes a State of Michigan UD10 Traffic Crash Report form and submits the data to the State of Michigan. Insurance companies typically request a copy of the crash report if you have been involved in a traffic crash. The Michigan Traffic Crash Purchasing System (TCPS) is a convenient online method to obtain your report for a $10.00 fee.
