Need A Police Report?








Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police IACP





Officers responding to your calls for service have certain criteria for writing reports.

Not all cases handled by the police will result in the generation of an official police report.


When a report has been completed, a copy of that report is available at the police department.

For confidentiality purposes you may be asked to present identification before any such transaction is completed.


Some reports that have been submitted to the County Prosecutor’s Office due to criminal charges are only released with their permission.  If you have any questions contact our Chief for his review of the matter.


Police and Crash Reports

There is a $5.00 administrative fee for police and vehicle crash reports. We would request 24 hours for preparation and then review. Accuracy is not always achieved after a long shift and simple clerical errors can happen. Our goal is to minimize these errors.


Title Checks

If you need a Title/VIN Check for a vehicle or watercraft, there is also a $5.00 charge.

Receipts are issued at the police dispatch center for our town residents.

If you live in the unincorporated county areas surrounding Demotte,

you will need to call the Sheriff’s Department for service at 219-866-7344.


Where does that $5.00 fee go?

Per State Board of Accounts, the money is designated for specific purposes related to equipment and training.

There is no departmental spending discretion built into the assessment of fees.
