An Accident

PLEASE NOTE: Our Police Service is located in Ontario, Canada. 

Reporting an Accident

By law the following collisions must be reported to the Police:

  • Where persons are injured
  • Where damage exceeds a combined value of $2,000.00
  • Or where there is damage to highway property (poles, guard rails, etc.)

In property-damage only collisions, citizens can exchange information and then may have up to 48 hours to report to the Collision Reporting Centre, rather than police attending.

The Peterborough Police Service has partnered with Accident Support Services International Ltd. to operate the Collision Reporting Centre.  Learn more about Accident Support Services International.

During business hours, towed vehicles must go directly to the Collision Reporting Centre from the scene of the collision. If you require a tow, please call the towing company of your choice.

The Collision Reporting Centre is located in the front lobby of the Peterborough Police Service station 500 Water Street, Peterborough, Ontario.

The operating hours of the Collision Reporting Centre are as follows:

Monday to Friday: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

If you have any questions, please contact the CRC directly at 705-741-4400
