Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report.

Once you have filled out and submitted your report you will:

  • Be provided a temporary case number for that report until it is reviewed and verified by the deputy.
  • Be able to print a copy of that report for your records.
  • Need to check your email regularly until you receive the email that contains your permanent case number.
    • If we need additional information, we will send an email requesting that information.
    • We attempt to process the reports as quickly as possible so the cases can be routed to the appropriate area.
    • If you fail to respond to the emails and we are unable to process the report as written, your report will be rejected and you will have to re-file the report
