MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 27, 2017 02:09 PM
From: Representative Russ Diamond
To: All House members
Subject: Helping Local Police Offset Costs (Former HB1740)
 
In the near future, I will be re-introducing legislation (2015-16 HB1740) to increase the fee for a local police report of a vehicle accident as permitted under § 3751 of Title 75.

Currently, the maximum fee local police departments are permitted to charge for furnishing a copy of an accident report is $15. This figure was set in 1992 and inflation would dictate that the same figure should now be $25.80.

Current law does allow for a $25 fee in a city of the first class, but the rest of our local police departments are capped at $15. My legislation increases that maximum fee to $22 to be in-line with the cost of a state police report, and allows police departments to issue an initial basic report to help victims file timely insurance claims.

I urge you to join me in co-sponsoring this legislation to help local police departments defer costs and to help keep local general taxes low.

In the 2015-16 session, the House passed HB1740 by a vote of 172-17.
