File a Police Report

Electronic reporting is a convenient way for you, as a crime victim, to file a report in a manner that best suits your schedule.

Please note, this reporting system is intended only for minor, non-felony crimes that occurred in the City of Topeka when suspect information is not available.

This service can be utilized for insurance and reimbursement claims for the below types of minor, non-felony crimes when the above criteria is met.
