Online Resources

A great deal of law enforcement related information is freely available to the public. These links will connect you to some of the most useful sites for obtaining information that may be of interest to the citizens of Landis and the surrounding communities.


Accident reports

The location of a crash determines which law enforcement agency investigates the accident. Landis Police investigate only those accidents which occur within the corporate limits of the Town of Landis. Accidents within the corporate limits of a neighboring municipality, including China Grove or Kannapolis, are investigated by that city's police department. All accidents that occur in unincorporated areas are investigated by the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

Based on pending litigation in the state concerning the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act and law enforcement agencies release of accident reports, the Landis Police Department will no longer be able to provide members of the public with DMV-349 reports. All requests for DMV-349 accident reports should be directed to the NC DMV.

Individuals who are directly involved in and listed on an accident report may receive a physical copy of the accident report from the Landis Police Department in person only. Please call 704-857-2129 or send an e-mail to in order to arrange a time to pick up your accident report.

Links on the town website have been replaced by the link to NC DMV for citizens to get a copy of their accident report. Accident reports are by mail only as there is no online access for these reports offered by the DMV.
