Arrest Reports are filed when a subject is arrested as a result of an investigation or issuance of a Order for Arrest or Warrant for Arrest.

Traffic Crash Reports are completed after officers respond to and investigate a traffic crash that occurred within the Town of Carrboro. Traffic Crash Reports will typically be available within 24 to 48 hours.
