CARFAX Police Crash Assistance Tools

Effective April 2012, the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police has entered into a valuable partnership with CARFAX to provide all Virginia law enforcement with exclusive investigative tools and free technology upgrades.

CARFAX Law Enforcement Solutions is a no-cost partnership between CARFAX and your agency that aims to help make life easier for law enforcement.

The program provides your agency:

  1. Exclusive CARFAX Investigative Tools and NEW! CARFAX VIN Alert: Your investigative units will have unlimited access to CARFAX Vehicle History Reports that will help them uncover fraud, dates and locations of recent events, unusual incident patterns, and dangerous pre-existing vehicle damage. Best of all, CARFAX will email you when they see activity on a vehicle you’re investigating using CARFAX VIN Alert. Mobile access to Vehicle History and access to an Investigative Trainer are also included in the program.

  2. Accident Report eCommerce: CARFAX provides police agencies with a free eCommerce solution to help them sell the accident reports they collect.  Your staff will free up time they would have spent manually responding to requests from the public for crash reports. This equals fewer administrative tasks and more feet on the streets for your agency.  Plus, you’ll automatically see a revenue check each month for the reports that sell on your agency’s eCommerce site.

  3. NEW! Partial Plate Searches: CARFAX for Police is continuing it’s growth and enhancement of the investigative resources available for law enforcement personnel. The most recent addition to the CARFAX for Poice investigative tools lineup will significantly enhance the investigative process by allowing personnel to recover information using partial plates from any state. The features include:

    • Web Based Access through the CARFAX for Police Investigative Tools Dashboard

    • Minimum of 3 character required  (first or last three characters plus state of origin)

    • Ability to narrow search parameters by including other known factors such as Year, Make and Model.

    • Receive list of potential VIN’s matching your request to include State, Plate, Year, Make and Model.

All of these benefits are completely FREE to your agency.  To learn more about CARFAX Law Enforcement Solutions, visit; or, call Matthew Simpson at (610) 858-7304 or email
