My car was towed. What do I have to do to get it back?
The registered owner needs to respond to the Alcoa Police Department station to obtain a vehicle release. If the registered owner does not have a valid driver’s license, they must bring someone with them who does.

Before the vehicle can be released, you must prove ownership with a picture ID and the vehicle registration. All ownership documentation must be current with the Department of Safety. You will need to contact the tow company to find out what their fees are for your vehicle.

If all requirements are met, you will be issued a release form by the police department. Take that form to the tow company, pay their fees and your vehicle will be released to you. Vehicle releases are processed anytime the station lobby is open. For after hours, please call 865-983-3620 and ask for a supervisor on duty.
