If this is an emergency and you need a Police Officer, call 9-1-1. Reporting crimes is an important part of crime prevention. These reports provide police and crime prevention organizations with crucial information, such as:

  • Where crimes are happening
  • What types of crime are occurring
  • Who is involved in crime (victims and perpetrators)
  • How often different types of crime are occurring

Crime prevention starts with identifying crime trends, and working to counteract them. Without crime reports, it is very difficult to find trends in criminal activity, which makes crime prevention more challenging. Many types of crime can be reported online. You can also submit an anonymous tip for a crime for which you are not a victim, if you wish to protect your identity. No crime is too small to report, and every report makes a difference.
