First Collision Reporting Center Opens in Tucson

Motorists involved in minor accidents have a new way to report vehicle damage, obtain a police report, and speed insurance claims. The Tucson Police Department (TPD) this week announced a partnership with Canada-based Accident Support Services International Ltd. (ASSI) to operate the first Collision Reporting Center in Arizona. The new center is centrally located at the Patrick K. Hardesty Midtown Multi-Service Center, 1100 S. Alvernon Way.

If you're involved in a traffic collision, please call 911 first. The operator will determine if a police response is needed or if the parties involved will be transferred to an ASSI representative at the center for further instructions.

The Collision Reporting Center can take statements, complete a state-mandated police report, and photograph the damage. This one-stop reporting process allows the information to be provided to TPD, the state, and your insurance carrier at the same time.

The service is funded by several automobile insurance companies in Arizona and provided at no cost to the City or community members. ASSI also will provide enhanced data to TPD, which will allow officers to focus enforcement efforts on reducing traffic collisions in certain areas.
