Collision Reports

The location of a crash determines which law enforcement agency investigates the accident. The Landis Police Department investigates only those collisions which occur within the corporate limits of the Town of Landis. Collisions within the corporate limits of a neighboring municipality, including China Grove and Kannapolis, are investigated by that city’s police department. All collisions that occur in unincorporated areas are investigated by the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

Based on pending litigation in the state concerning the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act and law enforcement agencies release of collision reports, the Landis Police Department will no longer be able to provide members of the public with DMV-349 reports. All requests for DMV-349 collision reports should be directed to the NC DMV.

Individuals who are directly involved in and listed on a collision report may receive a copy of the collision report from the Landis Police Department, in-person only. Please call 704-857-2129 or send an e-mail to to arrange a time to pick-up your collision report.
