Will an officer contact me after I report a crime?

Yes. Once you submit the report, an email is sent to our Records Division notifying them that a report was submitted. A Records clerk will access the data from the webform site and download the PDF file of the report during normal business hours. The clerk will add a call for service for tracking purposes, and the report will be passed to an officer for review. The officer will decide the next steps and notify the morning processing clerk. Following this process, you will be contacted by email or by phone depending on the circumstance of the crime. If the case is inactivated or no case is created, the reporting party will not hear directly from an officer.
