AFTER submitting your Online Incident Report:
- You will receive an email confirmation that your report was received.
- Once submitted, your report will be reviewed, and you will only be contacted if there is a problem with your report or if more information is needed. If your report is NOT eligible for Online Incident Reporting, it will be rejected.
- Your report may be assigned to an officer or detective for follow-up based on investigative leads and the severity of the incident. Unfortunately, most reported cases are closed without further action being taken. If a follow-up is required, you may be contacted upon receipt of your report or within 3-5 business days thereafter.
- Once your report has been approved, you will be notified of the assigned department case number. An official copy of your report will be available to you during business hours at the Police Records Bureau.
