Vehicle/Impound Release

If there is a hold on the vehicle, it shall not be released without the permission of the authorizing officer.

A 3rd party who is sent by the owner to pick up a vehicle must have:

  • A valid form of identification; and
  • A signed and notarized letter from the owner specifically naming 1) the individual to pick up the vehicle, and 2) a description of the vehicle, to include the vehicle make, model, color, and VIN (or tag number); and
  • Proof that the signatory owns the vehicle.

Repossession releases will only be available from Central Records. An Affidavit of Repossession (T-16) is required for release.
