Vehicle releases

Release conditions

All vehicles towed by the Police Department must be issued a release form before the tow company can release them. Eligible vehicles are released in person to the registered owner of the vehicle only at the Police Department. The owner must supply current valid registration, proof of insurance and a valid licensed driver.

If the vehicle was towed for excessive citations, those must be paid at the Police Department, or DMV, before release (bring all proof of payments).

30-day holds

If the vehicle has a 30 day hold, you may pick it up after the 30 days is up, or earlier if the person driving the vehicle at the time of tow gets their license reinstated (then they must come to the Police Department with the owner to get the release and bring proof from DMV). If the vehicle owner would like to request a post-storage hearing on the validity of the tow, the owner must contact the Police Department. 


The vehicle release fee is $125.00 and can be paid with cash or Visa/MasterCard only.

After obtaining a vehicle release form, the owner must take the form to the tow company and pay all towing and storage fees before release.
