Police Department - Reports and Services
The Mooresville Police Department maintains a number of public records that are available to the general public. In compliance with state statutes that govern the fees associated with these records, the Town of Mooresville has established a fee schedule. We accept the following methods of payment: debit/credit cards (a $3.00 service fee is applied), money order, cashier’s check, personal check or cash. If paying with cash, please provide the exact amount and no bills larger than a $20 will be accepted.
Accident Reports – $8.00
If you are looking to obtain a copy of an accident report, remember that officers have 24 hours to complete their report. Officers typically complete the reports at the end of their shift, however occasionally if the investigation is pending or additional information is needed, accident reports may not be immediately available. You may contact the Records Division at 317-831-3434 ext. 5 if you wish to check the status of your report.
Accident reports are not required by state law if there is less than $1,000.00 in damages, no one is injured and drivers have exchanged pertinent information. Accident reports can also be obtained 24 hours a day from the State of Indiana by using a credit or debit card at www.buycrash.com for $12.00.

For Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) checks, you must visit the Mooresville Police Department during the normal business hours Monday – Friday 8am to 4pm to pay for the VIN check. You will receive a receipt and that must be shown to the officer upon his arrival at your location. If you are pre-paying for the VIN check and do not need an officer to be dispatched immediately upon paying, please contact our dispatch using the non-emergency number of 317-831-3434 ext. 0. Please make sure that you have all the correct paperwork from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles as some officers may not have it with them.

If you have unwanted and/or expired medications that you want to dispose of responsibly, please bring them to the Mooresville Police Department. A secured receptacle is in our lobby that is emptied on a regular basis by our staff. Simply walk into our lobby and drop the medications in the bin. You are not required to provide any identification nor provide any additional information. This is a “No Questions Asked” program. Citizens disposing medications are not required to be residents of the Town of Mooresville.
While we are able to dispose of narcotics and other medications, we are unable to accept sharps (needles) or liquids with this program.
If you have any questions regarding how to properly dispose of any unwanted medications in your home or within your family, please contact our agency at 317-831-3434 to inquire with our officers.
