FAQs and Forms

Does the Vernon Police Department offer fingerprinting services?

Yes! Fingerprinting services are available for Vernon residents and non-residents who are employed in the Town of Vernon. There is a $15 cash fee for residents ($20 effective 1-1-2020) and a $25 cash fee for non-residents. Fees are payable by bank check, money order, or cash. Personal checks are not accepted.

Fingerprinting hours are Tuesday from 11am to 12pm and again on Wednesdays from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. No appointment is necessary.


What is the process to obtain a pistol permit?

Applications for a Temporary State Pistol Permit are available at the police department. The application packet contains detailed instructions as well as a description of associated fees. Applicants who obtain the State application form (DPS-799-C) on-line should obtain our instruction sheet which provides the most current information on the process and costs.


How can I obtain a copy of an accident report?

Copies of accident reports are available to the public, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act and other applicable State statutes, upon completion of the Police investigation and the approval of a Supervisor. Please note that accident reports may not be available for several days or longer depending on a number of factors including the severity of the accident and/or complexity of the investigation. You may call the Records Department during normal business hours at (860) 872-9126 Ext. 1127 to check on the availability of accident records. Copies of available reports may be obtained at the Records Division during normal business hours.

These reports may be inspected at no cost; copies may be purchased at a cost of fifty cents per page. Other fees apply to copies of audio/visual recordings depending on the format. Requests also may be made by mail when payment and a stamped, self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage is remitted. Payment may be made in cash, certified bank check or money order; we do not accept personal checks or credit/debit cards. Copies of accident reports may also be available through the on-line service BuyCrash.com at a higher cost. A search of that website requires the use of the full, ten-digit police case number (i.e. 1900000000).

Please note that only the Connecticut Uniform Crash Report is available from BuyCrash.com; other records created in connection with the investigation are only available from our Records Department.
