How to Identity Insurance Companies on Police Reports

Identifying the insurance company that insures a vehicle involved in a crash is easy. The responding officer will obtain the information in the process of preparing a police or collision report.

The officer usually obtains this information when the driver produces an Insurance Card at the scene of the crash or by running the vehicle through the D.M.V.

Once the officer obtains the information, it is then placed on the report. The insurance company is identified by a three digit code located in the last box on the right next to the vehicle type. That three digit code will correspond to codes provided by the Department of Motor Vehicles and the New York State Insurance Department.

The three digit code can be found here on the report:
