Public Records Policy
The Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) (18 U.S.C. § 2721) prohibits the disclosure of certain “personal information” or “highly restricted personal information” which originates from a State motor vehicle record. Under current controlling law, disclosure of each item “personal information” or “highly restricted personal information” must be justified by the specific permissible use identified below. Failure to provide such justification may result in redaction of the record requested. Such information shall not knowingly be disclosed or otherwise made available without the express consent of the person to whom the information pertains or unless specifically permitted by the DPPA. For purposes of determining whether such information should be released or redacted, please complete and return this form.
Traffic Crash/Accident Reports
If you were involved in a reportable traffic crash and a City of Middleton officer responded to investigate the crash, a State of Wisconsin DT400 crash/accident form will generally be completed. This form contains insurance and contact information for the involved parties and is typically requested for insurance or legal purposes.
The Middleton Police Department no longer provides copies of completed State of Wisconsin DT400 crash/accident reports.
All DT400 reports completed by Middleton officers will generally be available 10 days after the incident through the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
In most instances, insurance carriers only require an incident/document number to initiate a claim. You should have been provided with this information from the investigating officer.
