In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, and in an effort to help ensure the safety and wellness of our citizens and our officers, we will now be offering the ability to file incident reports online for certain types of offenses. This online format is intended only for non-emergent theft, vandalism, and fraud incidents. Upon submitting your report, you will receive a confirmation number which you can use to reference and track your submission. Further instructions are given on the submission page at the link below.

You should still contact dispatch for any other offenses, or for incidents requiring immediate police response. As always, please call 911 in case of emergency.
