Individuals and insurance companies can retrieve accident reports online. Information needed is the accident report number, date of accident, and last name of driver. The cost of the report is $9. Reports may not be available until 5 business days after the accident.
Criminal background checks can be completed by the Records Manager. These are for a record of Radford City Police Department arrests only. An official criminal history must be obtained from the Virginia State Police. Information on the cost and how to obtain a criminal history can be found online.
To obtain a criminal record from the Radford City Department of Police, you must come to the Department and bring two forms of identification, one of which must be a photo ID. The only other person allowed to get a copy of your information would be your legal counsel and then your record would only be released when a notarized, signed consent form is given to us by your attorney. The following request form (PDF) may be downloaded and filled out prior to coming to the department.
