Troopers Launch On-line Sale of LSP Crash Reports

The following is a news release from the Louisiana State Police:

The Louisiana State Police Traffic Records Section has made the process of obtaining LSP crash reports much easier for the public.  Beginning Wednesday, April 21st, citizens will be able to purchase crash reports through the Louisiana State Police Website.  Prior to this capability, the public was required to purchase crash reports in person at LSP Headquarters or Troop locations.

In an effort to make the process of obtaining crash reports more convenient for the public, the Louisiana State Police has created an on-line purchasing system through the LSP Website.  To purchase a crash report, the public should visit www.lsp.org and click on the Crash Report Req. (Request) link on the homepage's left side menu bar.  This link will take them to the LSP Statewide Crash Report Website where they will be required to enter first and last name of the driver/pedestrian involved, crash location by parish, and the date of crash.  Once the search results are returned, they will be able to preview the report to ensure it is the correct report.  After verifying that it is the correct report, they will have the option to purchase or search for an additional report.

A login ID must be created/used to finalize the transaction.  Each crash report costs $8.50.  Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover are accepted methods of payment.  Once checkout is complete, they will be able to print a PDF copy of the requested report.

"Public safety has always been our number one priority but we must not forget that many aspects of the Department's operations are customer service based," said Colonel Mike Edmonson, Deputy Secretary-Department of Public Safety and Superintendent of State Police.  "From the State Fire Marshal's Office to the Office of Motor Vehicles to the State Police, I have asked my Department Heads to review our procedures and determine where we can improve upon the services we provide to the public.  The on-line sale of crash reports is a tremendous step in the right direction as it provides the public with the convenience of purchasing a crash report from the comfort of their home or workplace."

    It will take yet another chunk of tax dollars to complete a road and canopy at Prien Lake Elementary in Lake Charles. The student pick-up/drop-off area is needed to improve traffic congestion on Nelson Road. However, Calcasieu Parish taxpayers are on the hook for an additional $33,153 because of dirt issues.
