If an accident occurs on private property, such as a parking lot, and the following conditions exist, the involved parties will no longer have to wait for a uniformed officer to respond and complete a report: The private property accident results in no injury, minimal damage, and the involved parties are civil, the involved parties are encouraged to exchange the following information to enable their respective insurance companies to file a claim: driver name, address, and phone number; names of all occupants; vehicle license number and vehicle identification number; insurance company and policy number. As a courtesy, the private property accident form, available through our website, is designed to assist motorists with providing the necessary information to insurance companies.

Fort Smith Police respond to calls for service based on the priority level of each individual call received. Calls involving violence, injury, or the possible threat of injury are assigned a higher priority. Currently, private property accidents that do not involve injury, major damage, or the possibility of violence between the involved parties receive a very low priority rating. These circumstances often cause those involved in such accidents to wait an extended amount of time for an officer to respond. This new service will prove to be beneficial and cost efficient to involved citizens, tax payers, and the police department.
