E-Reporting for Police Reports

In response to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the Police Department encourages people to reduce face-to-face contact and file an e-report for gathering information about non-person and after the fact crimes.  People should continue to call 911 during an emergency.  The E-Report is intended as a means for the public to provide police with information, while not risking exposure by giving report information in person.
