How do I obtain a traffic crash report?

Beginning January 1st, 2021, the Moline Police Department will begin using LexisNexis® BuyCrash for traffic crash reporting and records management. 

LexisNexis® BuyCrash is an online accident report management solution designed to help simplify the management and distribution of accident reports for law enforcement agencies. For consumers and insurance carriers, it’s a quick and convenient way to access accident reports, eliminating the need to drive to the police department to obtain a copy of your report. Crash reports take a minimum of 24 hours to be approved and appear online. 

If you are involved in a traffic crash, the officer who took the report will provide you with a white two-sided card containing the website, the information about the crash (date, report number, officer’s name, other parties involved, and police agency).

The reverse side of the card contains instructions on how to obtain the driver information exchange. The driver information exchange is available free of charge. In most situations, you will only need the driver information. Your insurance company might want the codes and officer diagram.  Your insurance agent can usually take care of this for you by requesting the police report through Lexis Nexis. Copies of full traffic crash reports can be obtained for a nominal fee of $10 online at The Moline Police Department does not receive any revenue from fees set by LexisNexis.

If you experience problems on the website, please call 1-866-215-2771 for assistance.
