On Feb. 27, the Phoenix Police Department launched a new online service for reporting minor theft, vehicle burglary, lost property and other crimes.
This system is part of the city’s focus on innovations and is expected to save nearly $1 million annually.
“I am extremely excited about this because it offers residents another tool to fight crime and it saves taxpayer dollars at the same time,” said Councilman Michael Nowakowski, chairman of the City Council Public Safety, Veterans, Transparency and Ethics Subcommittee.
“I have been a proponent of this from the beginning and am thrilled to see it come online,” said Councilwoman Thelda Williams. “This is cutting-edge, crime-fighting technology that will help protect residents and keep our neighborhoods safe.”
Residents may use the online option to report criminal damage, fraudulent use of credit/debit cards, identity theft, lost property, theft, among other crimes.
Residents must continue to contact 911 for emergencies and crimes in progress.
Residents may access this service at phoenix.gov/police.
