The following options are available for online crime reporting:

  • Harassing Phone calls/texts
  • Identity theft
  • Theft/lost property (excluding firearms, explosives or motor vehicles) 
  • Vandalism or graffiti
  • Violation of child custody order
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Accidents
  • RV permits
  • Tips-drug, gang, criminal or suspicious activity (Not an official report.  Provided information is considered a crime tip)
  • Supplemental reports (link under construction)

Please complete this form as accurately and completely as possible. This will help us screen your report for potential investigation. If you need to report more than one type of crime (or multiple instances), please complete a separate Report Form for each one. Each report will be reviewed. If additional information is needed or required you will be contacted by email or phone.

A detective will not contact you unless additional information is required.
