Report a Crime

Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Together professional law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime and neighborhood disorder throughout our communities. As such, we depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police.

Emergency: Call 911


Call 911 and ask for Police when:
  • Someone is badly injured or in danger
  • There's a serious risk to life or property
  • A crime is being committed and the offenders are still there or have just left
  • You've come across a major public inconvenience, such as trees blocking a highway
  • Any of these things are happening now or have just happened.
If you can't decide if it's a real emergency and you're still worried, call 911 and ask us. We'll help you work out what to do.
