My insurers want me to get a copy of police reports to support a claim. How do I get hold of them?

Most insurance companies are now signatories to an agreement with police forces that allow direct disclosure of certain information by the police (but only with the consent of the victims involved). 

The information that can be disclosed includes basic crime details, complaint and investigating officer's details, crime assessment and how the crime is being investigated (where the information will not compromise a police investigation), victim details (applicant only) and property items. 

Please note offender details will only be provided at our discretion, if it is proven that the information is needed for legal proceedings or a court order has been obtained.

Please contact your insurance company and ask them to apply by way of the ACPO / Association of British Insurers, Memorandum of Understanding.
