Welcome to the Longmont Department of Public Safety Citizens' Online Police Reporting System.

This reporting system has recently been updated to expand online reporting options for personal safety in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) so please read carefully.

This reporting system will allow you to submit a police report on-line and obtain a police report number. Your report will be reviewed online by a member of Longmont Public Safety and, if approved you will receive email notification with an attached copy of your report at no cost.  Please read all of the instructions below before beginning your report.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Filing a false report is a crime and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. 

Criteria For Submitting An Online Crime Report

An online police report can be filed if the following are true. All online criminal reports will be inactive unless further information develops.
A. The incident occurred in the city limits of Longmont or in the case of fraud or identity theft the victim must be a Longmont resident.
B. There are no known suspects or available investigative leads.
C. The incident is not a traffic accident.
D. The incident did not involve use of a gun.
E. The incident is not currently in progress.
F.  The incident presents no immediate danger or risk to personal safety.
G. No evidence was left at the scene that could be collected and examined by the police.
H. You have a valid email address.

If the incident you wish to report does not meet the criteria listed above and is not an emergency, call the Longmont Department of Public Safety non-emergency report taker office at (303) 651-8555. This office is open Monday-Friday between the hours of 7am and 6pm.

Types Of Reports Generated

The online police report system is designed to allow the public to submit two different types of reports, "Information  Reports" and "Crime Reports". See the descriptions below for both.

1. INFORMATION REPORT - A tip or information about suspicious or potentially dangerous activity that the reporting person has personally observed or is aware of. Examples of "Information Only" reports include: drug tips, general traffic complaints (does not include traffic accidents), or graffiti.  This type of report will be shared with city staff for response as appropriate.

2. CRIME REPORT - A "crime report" is the formal filing of a crime. Crime reports can only be filed online by the victim of the crime and only if the incident meets the criteria listed above under " Criteria for Submitting an Online Crime Report". In the absence of suspect(s) or evidence pertaining to the crime being reported, which are both part of the criteria for online reporting, the incident will not be assigned for investigation. Should additional investigative information surface, the case could be reopened.

Selecting An Online Report Category Which Meets Criteria Outlined Above

*After submitting an online "Crime Report", the reporting victim/reporter will receive an email with a temporary tracking number. Within 7-10 days after submitting the online crime report the victim/reporter will receive a second email with a permanent "police case report number". It is important to keep the temporary tracking number until a permanent number has been assigned to your crime report. If AFTER 10 days, you have NOT received email notification and a permanent case report number, call (303) 651-8555 to speak with a staff member. Remember to print or save a copy of the online submission emails for your records and insurance purposes.
