Online Crime Reporting
The online crime reporting system is designed to simplify the process of making a report for crimes occurring within the city limits. You can make a report from any computer that has Internet access at a time that is most convenient for you. With the online reporting system, you don’t have to call dispatch, explain your reason for calling, or wait for an officer to call you or respond to your location to take the report. For certain crime reports, you can enter the information yourself and get a crime report number quickly and easily.
