Delayed Accident Reports are designed for citizen reporting of an accident after the fact, and they are not typically investigated by an officer unless the suspect vehicle fled the scene AND the license plate and vehicle information was obtained in order for an officer to conduct follow up investigation. Delayed Accident Reports are designed to be completed and returned to the Fayetteville Police Department, and they are not able to be submitted online at this time; however, you may mail them in or drop them off at 100 W. Rock Street, Fayetteville, AR 72701. An accident falls into this category if the accident occurred on a city street.

Private Property Accident Reports are designed for citizen reporting of an accident, and they are not typically investigated by an officer unless the suspect vehicle fled the scene AND the license plate and vehicle information was obtained in order for an officer to conduct follow up investigation. Private Property Accidents are designed to be completed by the citizen and then submitted by the citizen to their insurance company to suffice as their police report. These would ONLY be returned to the Fayetteville Police Department if the follow up investigation criteria were met. An accident falls into this category if the accident occurred in a parking lot or other area of private property.
