If your vehicle has been towed by the Hamilton Police Service in order to retrieve it you must report to one of the three stations to obtain a vehicle release form. Please bring proper identification to show that you own the vehicle.

Upon receiving the vehicle release form you may then attend the appropriate tow compound and pay all applicable fees.
