Theft and lost or missing personal property
Your property must be reported by you and cannot be reported by another. To fulfill the statutory requirements, you must be able to demonstrate an interest in the lost or stolen property. Use the online system to report property losses under $1,500 in value. Should there be physical evidence (blood, fingerprints, trace evidence) left behind of the reported crime, then we would require a personal response. Evidence such as video, photographs, and documents can be attached to the online report. Please do not report burglaries, vehicle (automobile/ATV/boats/aircraft) thefts, license plate thefts, or thefts of firearms online.
Unlawful use of financial information
You can report online anytime someone has used your credit card/debit card or bank information to purchase goods and services. Documentation of those charges can be attached to this report. Any value in excess of $5,000 will require a personal response. Either you can make the report with the station officer at the LEC or call for an officer to come to your location.
Identity Theft (someone used your personal information without your consent)
Any time someone uses your personal information without your consent, you may report this online. If you also suffer a financial loss, please only report online a loss of less than $5,000 (as noted above). Like the other reports, you may attach the financial documents of the identity theft to the online report. Please do not file check forgery or counterfeit money reports online as those crimes will likely produce pieces of physical evidence that requires collection. In those circumstances please initiate a personal response by seeing the station officer or calling an officer to your location.
Property damage under $1,000 in estimated value
Any time your property is defaced or caused damage that inhibits its use, can be reported online. Please attach photographs of the damaged or defaced property and list the monetary loss. You may report any damage under $1,500 via the online reporting system.
Harassment by Telephone
Any repeated and unwanted contact or threats via a telecommunication device constitutes harassment. Clearly establish that the contact is unwanted and document the repeated contacts should they follow. Do not use the online reporting system should there be any type of protective/restraining order in place as that will require a personal response. Furthermore if any threats conveyed to you indicate an immediacy of action on behalf of the caller, immediately call for law enforcement response.
Violent or Sexual crimes
Should you have need to report crimes of that nature, we want to best serve you by responding in person. This way we can conduct a thorough scene investigation and bring additional resources to bear.
Disturbance or Breach of Public Peace
Immediately call for an officer to respond at 785-368-9551
