FILE A CRIME REPORT

If you would like to report illegal behavior within the city of Sacramento, please file a crime report.

Crime is the primary driver of police activity. The Sacramento Police Department reports crime occurring in the city based on the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) standard. UCR data is used in law enforcement administration, operation and management, as well as to track the fluctuations in the level of crime throughout America. The Sacramento Police Department provides these crime statistics and Most Wanted Postings in order to keep the public informed about crime and criminals in our neighborhoods and city.  By clicking the blue "i" in the upper right corner of the map, you can find specific instructions on how to use the map and the map key.
