Helpful Tips:

  • Protect your social security number and only give it out when required by law.
  • No bank, auction site or other business should send you an email asking you to enter credit card information, passwords, social security numbers or other personal information. Often these fake emails will contain links to pages that look real but are not. If you suspect you are being directed to a fake site please go to the actual home web site of the company and inform them of what has happened.
  • Avoid mail theft by obtaining a locked mailbox and dropping off outgoing mail at the local post office or postal mailbox.
  • Do not give out your personal information or credit card number over the phone unless you initiated the call.
  • Shred credit card offers and bank statements before you throw them away if you do not plan on using them.

Upon completion of the report process, you will:

  • See the words "Your online police report has been submitted". This will indicate that your police report is complete.
  • Be given a temporary police report number.
  • Be able to print a copy of the police report to keep for your records.

All cases filed using the Citizens' Online Police Reporting System will be reviewed. If further investigation of your case is required, you may be contacted. Once the report has been approved, it will be issued a permanent police case number and a copy will be emailed to you (email address required). All future correspondence should include the permanent case number. Please allow up to five (5) business days (excluding holidays) for your report to be reviewed.

Note: It is a crime to knowingly file a false police report. Any intentionally false information, mis-statement or inaccuracy may result in criminal prosecution. Penal Code section 148.5.(a) states: Every person who reports to any peace officer listed in Section 830.1 or 830.2 or subdivision (a) of Section 830.33, district attorney, or deputy district attorney that a felony or misdemeanor has been committed, knowing the report to be false, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
