South Simcoe Police Service to open collision reporting centres
South Simcoe Police Service has partnered with Accident Support Services International Ltd. (ASSI) to implement collision reporting centres (CRCs) in the towns of Bradford West Gwillimbury and Innisfil in Ontario. The Innisfil CRC will open Jan. 8, 2019, at 9:00 a.m, followed at 11:00 am by the Bradford West Gwillimbury location.
“The collision reporting centres will allow for better utilization of our officers’ time and will keep not only our members but also the community safe by removing collisions from the side of the road quickly and in an efficient manner,” said Chief Andrew Fletcher, South Simcoe Police Service. “The centres also provide a safe and comfortable environment for members of the public to file their reports.”
The South Simcoe Police Service Collision Reporting Centres will be located at 81 Melbourne Dr. in Bradford and 2137 Innisfil Beach Rd. in Innisfil.
Upon arrival at the centre, citizens are greeted by a member of Accident Support Services’ staff, who provides help to complete the police report, applies the “Damage Reported to Police” sticker, photographs the damage to the vehicle, and offers the customer the opportunity to contact family, broker or insurance company directly from the centre.
Participation in the CRC program allows participating police services to also gain valuable insight into traffic patterns and high-risk locations through analytics tools, according to ASSI.
ASSI has provided customer service since 1994, with a goal to facilitate an active partnership between police and insurers in post-accident care by providing knowledgeable advice and assistance to accident victims.
