The correct registration, storage and monitoring of information associated with traffic accidents is key to decision making in areas as diverse as public health, viable policies, insurance, among others. Colombian legislation has delegated to the entities responsible for transit the implementation of technological tools that facilitate the documentation of the Traffic Accident Police Report. The present project develops a solution based on software application that allows to digitize the registry, until now manual, of the information of the accidents and its later visualization and analysis in the information systems. The research shows there are improvements in the time of recording information and in the reliability of the data. It is necessary to deepen the processes of training users in digital skills for their use, as well as in improving the process of lifting the sketch of the accident.
