While filling out an online report, information requests with a red asterisk * are mandatory.

For all other incident types the e-mail address that you provide is where replies and report copies will be sent.
Upon completion of this process you will:
- See the words: "Your online police report has been submitted."

- Once the report is approved, you will receive an e-mail within five days providing you with a permanent case number. A copy of your report will be attached to the e-mail.
- Be able to print a copy of the police report to keep for your records.
- All reports filed online will be reviewed.
- If your report does not meet the online reporting criteria you will be notified.
- Upon review, if further investigation of your case is needed, you may be contacted.
