First, find out who towed the car. If it was towed from private property, check with the property owner. If it was towed as part of an arrest or as evidence, the registered owner of the vehicle must come to the Public Safety Department with a valid ID, proof of ownership of the vehicle, proof of current insurance, and two valid drivers before the vehicle will be released.
