Law Enforcement Accident Reporting

Law enforcement officers who investigate accidents are responsible for reporting them to the South Dakota Office of Accident Records.

By reporting quality data from the scene into the South Dakota Accident Reporting System (SDARS), you can help us identify patterns and problems in engineering, law enforcement or education on roadway safety.

Below you can find instructions on using SDARS along with crash forms. For a printed manual or other questions, contact us or call (605) 773-3868.
