Everett Police To Share Crash Data With CARFAX


The information sharing agreement is for one year with option for renewal.

The Everett City Council recently approved an agreement between the Everett Police Department and CARFAX that allows the Police Department to send vehicle collision data to CARFAX. The data is taken from the standard vehicle collision report and does not contain any information about drivers, owners or witnesses to a crash but only about the vehicle involved.

In exchange for providing CARFAX with access to that data the Everett Police Department can access the CARFAX data bases without charge. CARFAX says their investigative tools offer many specialty applications that support law enforcement investigations related to misuse of Vehicle Identification Numbers, odometer fraud, airbag fraud, falsification of vehicle titles, insurance fraud and collision history.

Everett Police can also get vehicle valuation reports from CARFAX at no charge. The council approved the agreement at their meeting on October 25th. You can see the complete agreement here. The agreement is for a one year term with option for renewal.
