Please keep in mind, there are many factors that may delay the report you are looking for to show up. If after 7 business days, the report is not there, contact Elyria Police Records at 440-322-2241 or email EPD Records for a status update. Private property crashes will not appear on this site, i.e., in the parking lot of a business. These reports you will need to obtain directly from the Police Department. Reports obtained from the above website are free of charge. Once reports are available, they will be immediately available online, however, if you prefer to pick a copy up from the department, there may be a delay due to hours of operation and other job requirements.
