Records Division

The Clarksville Police Department Records Division maintains information regarding incidents and crashes that occur within the City of Clarksville. If you require a copy of a report, you can submit a request in person between the hours of 08:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at 135 Commerce Street, you can submit a request by email at or online using the Motor Vehicle Crash Report Form. Depending on your specific request, you may be given additional instructions before the report is provided to you. The Records Division will be closed on weekends and on all City Holidays.

To obtain a copy of a motor vehicle crash report directly through the Clarksville Police Department you must be the driver of the vehicle, owner of a vehicle involved in a crash, agent for a driver or owner of a vehicle involved in a crash or an attorney for either the driver or owner of a vehicle involved in a crash. 

Accordingly, to process your request, drivers and owners of vehicles are required to provide a copy of their driver's license, attorneys are required to provide a letter of representation, and agents are required to provide the number of the insurance policy involved or a letter of agency signed by the driver or owner.  

Please allow 3 to 5 Business Days for the Motor Vehicle Crash Report to become available for processing.

In Tennessee, unless a law or regulation states otherwise, government records must be made available for viewing. If you would like to obtain any records through the City of Clarksville's public record request see the links below.

Pursuant to T.C.A.§ 10-7-503(g) the Clarksville City Council adopted a Public Records Policy for the City of Clarksville. View the City of Clarksville’s Public Records Policy (PDF) and the Online Public Records Request Form.

If you are not the owner, driver, or agent or attorney for the owner or driver, you may request records through the Public Records Request form process.
