Chatham-Kent Accident Support Service Collision Reporting Centre
According to the Highway Traffic Act, where combined damage to property of $2000 or more, the collision must be reported to the police. In Chatham-Kent, the police offer a safe and convenient method to report property damage collisions. Rather than waiting at the side of the road or blocking traffic waiting for the police to arrive, citizens can use the Collision Reporting Centre (CRC).
The Chatham-Kent Police and Accident Support Services operate a CRC out of our headquarters at 24 Third Street, Chatham.
This service is available daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (not on weekends or holidays).
If a “minor” collision occurs, both drivers shall exchange information: driver’s licence and address information, vehicle plate and description from permit (green paper) and insurance information (pink paper). They can then drive to the headquarters and report the collision.
Collisions not involving injury that occur anywhere in the Municipality can be reported here at the convenience of the involved parties (usually just after it happens) within 48 hours (over a long weekend, 72 hours).
Vehicles that need to be towed can be brought in from Chatham and the immediate surrounding area. Please call for an officer to attend the scene if towing is required from the outer regions of the Municipality.
Collisions involving suspected impairment by alcohol or drugs shall be called to police for scene attendance and not use the CRC.
Collisions diverted to the CRC allow police to reallocate the time they would have spent investigating the collision to higher priority needs in the community.
