Q: How can I get my car out of impound?

A: If the police department impounds a vehicle, the registered owner will need a release to get the vehicle out of the wrecker yard. A release requires that the owner of the vehicle bring proof of ownership along with a photo ID to the Nichols Hills Police Department.  A release will then be given to them and they can go retrieve the vehicle at the yard. The Nichols Hills Police Department is not responsible for fees incurred against the vehicle due to the tow or storage of the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to pay these prior to the wrecker yard releasing the vehicle.

Q: How do I file a victim's protection order?

A: The request for a VPO must be filed at the county court clerk's office. This is located on the fourth floor of the courthouse at 320 Robert S. Kerr in Oklahoma City. This application will be presented to a judge, who will then decide if a temporary order should be issued. If the judge issues the order, it will only become valid if it is served to the opposing party. After it is served, both parties will have a court date where they will present their case before a judge. The judge will then determine if the order should be made permanent.
