Some incidents do not require a police officer to investigate and write a report. For example, thefts of most personal property, thefts of vehicles, lost property, and vandalism can be phoned in and a report taken. A service representative will ask you questions from the report, fill them in as you describe, and provide you with a case number for your reference.
The department also has an Online Police Report that may be completed and submitted online. There are 11 crimes listed that may be reported using this online form. You may also call the Police Department Headquarters for guidance.
