Motor vehicle crash reports, written by the Frisco Police Department, are available for purchase online. The cost of an online crash report is $6.
To obtain an accident report in person or by mail, complete a Request for Crash Report and return the form to the police department, along with payment of $6 (or $8 for certified reports). Checks should be made payable to the City of Frisco. Crash reports are usually available 3-5 business days after the accident.

The CR-2, also called a "blue form," can be completed by a driver of a vehicle involved in a crash that is not investigated by a law enforcement agency. Additionally, the blue form can only be used when there is no injury to any person involved in the crash and the value of damaged property is not in excess of $1,000. More information on the blue form's use is located on the first page of the form.

Uniform Crime Reporting
The Frisco Police Department participates in the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, which was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation.
In 1930, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving UCR statistics. Today, nearly 17,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States report their annual crime statistics to the FBI, including the Frisco Police Department.
For more information on Frisco's 2011 UCR Statistics, please contact Records Manager Teresa Presley at 972.292.6050 or email Records@FriscoTexas.gov.
