Wondering what a non-reportable accident is? The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Police Officers Crash Report Manual describes it as follows:

A non-reportable crash involves a crash with no injury or death of any person, in which there is no towing due to the damage to the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Furthermore, if the incident occurred on private property or was a result of deliberate intent or cataclysm, the crash is non-reportable. A non-reportable crash does not require a Police Crash Report Form to be completed or submitted to PENNDOT.

This article is in response to the public’s desire to know more about what is happening within their community, including crime. State law makes certain types of police documents available to the public, but shields others. For example, the information we provided above is available, but those involving an investigation are not.

However, police can release information regarding investigations if they chose. You may remember that the Plymouth Township Police Department previously released fairly regularly details on investigations, especially retail theft, and asked for the public’s help in identifying suspects. As MoreThanTheCurve.com reported, the department stopped doing this about a year ago.
