Vineland police take unconventional approach to crash reports

Posted: Updated:
VINELAND - In Vineland, police there are using an unconventional tool for car-related incidents.

Since 2011, Vineland Police has been using the automotive history service Carfax to run vehicle identification numbers.

Accident reports are also available online, which replaces the prior system of having to receive a paper copy from the police department.

As Sergeant Chris Fulcher tells us, it's a new approach to policing.

"It's been a two-pronged advantage to us, not for the vehicle information for us, but for the availability of the crash reports, just making it a little easier [and] efficient for people to get a hold of them," said Fulcher.

The system reportedly saves the department $35,000 a year, not including the administrative time spent reproducing accident reports.
