Ask a Dispatcher
Q. Is there a time limit for filing a police report. A teenager backed into me in a parking lot and did not want to go through insurance so I accommodated them. The estimates I got are higher than they expected and now want to go through insurance. This happened in August. Can I still file a police report for insurance purposes? The damage was less than $2000.
Dear Juneau Resident,
You can ask for an informational case and get a case number. JPD would not be investigating what happened or issuing any traffic citations. It would be up to the insurance companies to hash it out if there is a dispute over who was at fault. Just call 586-0600 and indicate the report you want to make. Have all the information you have about the other party and vehicles ready if you would like that information to be in the case.
