My vehicle was impounded, How do I get it back?

The Oneonta Police Department enforces a Safe Streets Act ordinance. This ordinance, enacted in 1998, requires us to impound any vehicle that is being unlawfully operated by a driver with any of the following:

-No Driver License -Driving with a Suspended Driver License -Driving with a Revoked Driver License -Driving with a License that is Expired by More than 90 Days.

If you were driving a vehicle or own a vehicle that was impounded by the Oneonta Police Department, You will need the following items before your vehicle will be released from impound.

The registered owner and/or lien holder may recover the vehicle by coming to the Oneonta Police Department in person and provide the following:

-VALID DRIVER LICENSE -VEHICLE TITLE (or) -CURRENT TAG RECEIPT -PROOF OF CURRENT INSURANCE

If the registered owner is not a licensed driver, the owner must produce a valid photo identification. In addition, the owner will need to bring (2) licensed drivers with him/her to the Oneonta Police Department before the vehicle can be released. If the registered owner of the vehicle is unable to claim their vehicle in person, the owner will need to send a notarized letter giving the department permission to release the vehicle. If you have any questions you may contact the Oneonta Police Department at (205) 625-4351.

 

(Prices are subject to change without notice.) IF THE VEHICLE IS NOT CLAIMED
WITHIN 60 DAYS OF BEING IMPOUNDED, PROCEDURES MAY BE STARTED TO SELL THE VEHICLE
AT PUBLIC AUCTION.
If you have any questions on how much it will cost to

recover your vehicle, you may call the rotation wrecker service that towed your
vehicle for an up-to-date-cost. THE ROTATION WRECKER SERVICE WILL NOT
RELEASE YOUR VEHICLE WITHOUT A WRITTEN RELEASE FROM THE ONEONTA POLICE
DEPARTMENT.
