Private Property Accident Information Exchange

Pursuant to Illinois law, the Wheaton Police Department does not investigate incidents on private property if:

  • there were no injuries
  • no criminal behavior is involved
  • property damage is estimated to be less than $1,500

If your vehicle is involved in an accident that meets these criteria, exchange contact information with the involved parties and contact their vehicle insurance company.

To gather necessary information from the other parties, residents may use this Private Property Accident Information Form (pdf). This form is to collect information about the other driver for your records; it will not be retained by the Wheaton Police Department.
