Today marks the end of the national week celebrating open government. But if you have questions for the people who serve you, know that you can ask. Many of the records kept by the government are public and can be requested.
To the right, local government agencies outline the most effective ways to request information.
Chapel Hill Police Department
To request a traffic collision report, visit the department Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The fee is 10 cents per page. To request crime statistics, contact crime analyst Karen Rose, at (919) 968-2760, ext. 154.
Town of Chapel Hill
