The Halton Regional Police Service has entered into an agreement with Halton Accident Support Services Ltd. to operate three collision reporting centres (CRC) in the Region. These reporting centres are privately owned and staffed with non-Service employees. These centres will take reports for minor property damage collisions.
There are three common ways that drivers involved in minor motor vehicle collision will attend a CRC:
HRPS Headquarters Lobby
1151 Bronte Road, Oakville, ON, L6M 3L1
Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (Monday-Friday)
Closed Saturday, Sunday and Holidays
HRPS 12 Division Lobby
490 Childs Drive, Milton, ON, L9T 5G2
Hours: 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (Monday - Friday)
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (Saturday)
Closed Sundays and Holidays
HRPS 30 Division Lobby
3800 Constable Henshaw Blvd., Burlington, ON, L7M 3Y2
Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (Monday - Friday)
10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (Saturday, Sunday and Holidays)
In cases where a driver attends a Collision Reporting Centre, the involved vehicle must be driven or towed to the centre for examination. When you arrive at the CRC staff will document and photograph damage, apply damage stickers, take the MVC report, and facilitate contact with respective insurance companies.
Outside of CRC hours of operation, all motor vehicle collisions will be dispatched to and investigated by front line patrol officers. Collisions that are investigated and completed by officers are not referred to the CRC. Vehicles will be removed from the scene and will be taken to wherever the driver/owner directs.
