To claim a vehicle that has been towed, you must first receive a written release from the Mission Police Department.
To obtain a release:
- We may only release a vehicle to its registered owner. If the registered owner is unable to come to the police station, a witnessed or notarized statement from the owner giving permission for someone else to claim the vehicle must be brought to the station.
- We must see a valid drivers license. If the registered owner does not have a valid drivers license, s/he will need to bring someone who does. If you were arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), you would have received a pink slip of paper called a DC-27. That replaces your license and must be shown when you are claiming your vehicle.
- We must see current proof of insurance.
- The vehicle registration must be current. The Police Department administrative staff has access to registration information online.
The administrative offices are open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. If you wish to receive a vehicle release outside of regular business hours, please call 913-782-0720. The Johnson County Sheriff's Office will dispatch an officer to the station to release your vehicle.
If you have any questions, including which tow lot is storing your vehicle, please call 913-676-8300.
You must call the Municipal Court (913-676-8325) at least one day before your given court date.

If you have been issued a summons for certain
equipment violations, you are eligible to pay half of the original fine if you
correct the problem and bring the vehicle to the Municipal Court before your
scheduled court date. Your equipment violation must fall within one of the
three categories: (1) broken or defective lighting equipment, (2) expired
license tags, or (3) broken mirrors or broken windshields. A Police Officer
will certify that the violation has been corrected and upon approval you will
be eligible to pay half of your original fine, which must be paid at the time
of vehicle inspection.
If you had valid insurance for the vehicle you
were driving on the date cited and simply didn't have proof at the time of the
stop, you can bring such proof to the Court any time before your court date and
have the violation dismissed. The insurance coverage will be verified with the
State. If you did not have insurance coverage at the time of your citation, you
need to obtain coverage for your vehicle and provide proof to the Court at the
time of your scheduled Court hearing.
