The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service, the Kawartha Lakes Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police and Accident Support Services International Ltd. (ASSI) facilitators of Collision Reporting to the insurance industry.
The Kawartha Lakes Collision Reporting Centre provides enhanced value to the public in the reporting of vehicle collisions by providing a faster and safer response to property damage collisions. In addition, the Centre also helps free up officer time that can be re-allocated to other investigations and crime and accident prevention initiatives. The CRCs are funded entirely by supporting insurers so there is no cost to the Police Service or local taxpayers.
The Kawartha Lakes Collision Reporting Centre is located at 6 Victoria Avenue North, Lindsay.
The hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Collisions eligible for reporting at the Centre are property damage collisions where there are no injuries and no criminal offences involved. Police will continue to investigate collisions at the scene that involve injuries, suspected criminal activity or damage to private property.
In cases where a collision occurs and vehicles are drivable, citizens will be directed to drive to the Centre to complete their report. In cases where vehicles are not drivable, tow trucks will be dispatched to the scene to clear the vehicles and transport parties involved to the CRC. Upon arrival at the centre, citizens are greeted by a member of the Accident Support Services staff who provides assistance to complete the police report, applies the ‘damage reported to police’ sticker, photographs the damage to the vehicle, and offers those involved the opportunity to contact their family, broker or insurance company directly from the Centre. They are provided with a one-stop service opportunity for all of their reporting needs. Completed police reports will be reviewed by police on site for accuracy and issuing of violation tickets if warranted.
