Starting June 4, 2018, all private property and cold accident reports that meet the following criteria may be reported online through the Colorado Online Accident Report website:

  • No fatality or injury requiring medical attention
  • The accident is not an alleged hit & run or there is no information on the other driver
  • No damage to any public property
  • No drivers involved are suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or have insurance, registration, or license violations

A kiosk will be available in the FCPS Records lobby and Campus West Connections office for anyone who would like to make a report. These reports will not be investigated by Fort Collins Police. The online system will allow residents to document an incident for non-criminal purposes (i.e. insurance). Please contact the Colorado Department of Revenue for questions related to reports made through this system at (303) 205-5600.
