Notice to Owners/Drivers of Impounded Vehicles

Before reclaiming a vehicle at the wrecker company lot, you must get a Vehicle Release Form from the Atlanta Police Department (APD) Property Control Unit located at:

The Atlanta Public Safety Annex
3493 Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy, NW
Atlanta, GA 30331
Fax 404-696-1459

This office is open every day from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. to process vehicle releases.

In order to receive the Vehicle Release Form from the APD Property Control Unit, you are required to present proof of both your identity and your right to the vehicle as either the owner or the owner’s representative. Georgia Code section 40-11-1 defines the owner as “the registered owner, the owner as recorded on the title, lessor, lessee, security interest holders, and all lienholders as shown on the records of the Department of Revenue or the records from the vehicle's state of registration."
