Online Police Reports

How can I prepare for filing an Online Police Report?

  • The online report service limits users to 30 minutes to complete each section of the report before the system will ‘time out’.
  • Tip: Opening a word processing program to write out exactly what occurred prior to starting your online report may help. Once you get to the portion of the report where your statement and summary are needed, simply cut and paste it into the report.
  • Tip: Please note that you are limited to 2,000 characters when typing your narrative section.
  • Each time you click "continue" at the bottom of each section, the 30 minute timer resets to the full 30 minutes for the next page.
  • When reporting some of the following online crime/incident types you may be prompted to let us know if you have any video or photographic evidence that may identify a suspect(s) or suspect vehicle(s). Please read all instructions to successfully submit any digital evidence.

What happens after I complete an Online Police Report?

  • You will immediately receive a temporary report number and be able to print a copy of the report you just made.
  • The report you submitted online will be reviewed prior to final acceptance and approval.
  • Reports are reviewed to ensure they can be accepted online based on incident type and all necessary details included.
  • A majority of reports are not assigned to detectives for follow-up based on investigative leads, severity of the crime, the District Attorney's case filing guidelines, and investigative staffing. If follow-up will be conducted on your case, you will be contacted by Investigations.
  • Once the report has been approved, a permanent SPD report number is issued and a copy of the final report will be emailed back to you.
  • Check your junk mail or spam inbox if the Tracking Number is not received within 15 minutes after submitting the report.
  • Add to your trusted email list.
