The online crime report makes it easier for citizens to report certain crimes to local police agencies. It also is helpful for victims who need a crime report number in order to submit a claim to their insurance company. The online tool will send a report number to the victim’s email address within 72 business hours.
While submitting the report online does not require a deputy or officer to respond, all reports are reviewed by law enforcement personnel. You can request an in-person follow-up. If you are unsure if the crime that you are reporting should be reported online, call 911 for advice.
To report online you should have, at a minimum, a valid email address and you know the location where the incident occurred. The report is intended for crimes involving stolen items or damage of less than $5,000. If the amount exceeds $5,000 or the crime is a felony, you know who the suspect is, or if you do not know where the crime occurred, you must call 911.
The online tool is available to desktop, laptop, tablet, or smart phone devices.
