Records :: Vehicle Impound Release
Vehicles impounded by Newport Police Department for violations such as driving under the influence of intoxicants, driving while suspended or revoked, driving uninsured and/or operating a vehicle without driving privileges, must be cleared through the Records Division in order to issue a Vehicle Impound Release form.
Vehicle Impound Releases are issued during the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The owner or other person entitled to lawful possession of the vehicle must present the following items to the Newport Police Department:
Valid driving privileges can include a signed Implied Consent Form, in the circumstance of a DUII arrest. If an Implied Consent permit was not issued by the arresting officer, and the owner or other person entitled to possession of the vehicle does not have valid driving privileges, the vehicle may be released to a second party who accompanies the owner or person possessing the right of ownership, provided that person can show proof of valid driving privileges.
Vehicle Impound Releases are payable by cash, money order or cashier's check only, payable to the City of Newport. Credit cards and personal checks are not accepted.
The administrative fee paid to the City of Newport does not include any incurred charges and fees by the towing company.
