New Citizen Online Reporting System


Police Bureau Introduces New Citizen Online Reporting System

The Portland Police Bureau has launched a new Citizen Online Reporting System. This internet-based system, gives citizens the ability to report property crimes within Portland that have no suspect information, saving them time and money and freeing up valuable police resources for response to more critical incidents.

Once submitted, Portland police officers will review and approve every report. Reports that require additional response or are otherwise inappropriate will be modified and responded to as needed. The reporting citizen will then receive a PDF copy of the approved and case numbered report via email within 72 hours. This online service is without any cost to the citizen and avoids the current minimum $10 expense and delay in receiving copies of reports not submitted online.

Citizens can report the following types of incidents:

Theft from vehicle

Vandalism to vehicle

Theft (excluding firearms and prescription medications)

Vandalism (excluding graffiti)

Lost property (excluding firearms and prescription medications)

Additional property information (property information from a previously filed report)

The Online Reporting System can be accessed at
