Once you submit your report it will need to be reviewed and approved by a police officer before you will be able to obtain an official report from the Records Division.
Print Report Information - If you would like a printed copy of your unapproved report, you must print the report at the time of submission. If you choose to print the report at that time, this report will NOT be an “official” report.
Follow-up information - The police officer reviewing your report may send you an email requesting additional information that is needed before the report can be approved. Please ensure you provide a valid email address on the submission form for email notifications and correspondence.
Rejected Reports - The police officer reviewing your report may reject your report if for some reason the report is not able to be submitted online. If the report is rejected any follow-up will require a complete re-submission of the online report.
