Collision/Offense Reports

Collision reports are provided only to the parties involved in the collision, and/or to the insurance companies acting on the parties' behalf. Collision reports are no longer considered "open records" and will not be released to third parties not related to the collision.

In lieu of providing an offense report, victims will be given a theft/loss report, that will outline the specifics of the offense and list any and all property that was damaged or stolen, etc.

There is a $2.00 charge for all copies. Insurance companies requesting a copy of reports must include a self-addressed stamped envelope and the $2.00 fee.

Citizen Police Academy

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office believes that educating the community will result in gaining their understanding and support. Through implementation of the Citizen Police Academy, citizens gain new insights into how law enforcement officers perform their duties, as well as how the Sheriff's Office serves the community. The success of any law enforcement agency depends largely upon the amount of cooperation and support it receives from the citizens it serves.
