CHICAGO, IL – The Illinois State Police (ISP), in conjunction with the State Treasurer’s Office, has made the process of requesting ISP-handled traffic crash reports more convenient. The public may now request crash reports using either the ISP or Treasurer’s Office websites through an Internet payment service called E-Pay.
“In keeping with Governor Blagojevich’s commitment of making state services more readily available to the public, the E-Pay system was designed to expedite the process of receiving ISP crash reports. Individuals can now order a copy of the report via the Internet and make payment with a credit card, debit card, or e-check,” said ISP Director Larry G. Trent.
Before implementation of E-Pay, the public had to request copies of traffic crash reports by mail or in-person and make payment in cash or check prior to the request being filled. E-pay will also help save personnel resources, simplify payment processing, and reduce processing costs.
The public is reminded the sites may be used to obtain reports of crashes handled by the Illinois State Police only. Accident reports handled by county and local agencies must be requested from the responsible jurisdiction.
