Online Crime Reporting

The San Antonio Police Department has recently begun taking reports online via its web site:

This service allows crime victims to file a police report from the convenience of work or home, while simultaneously reducing calls for service on field units. A reduction in call volume means patrol officers can spend more time detering crime, rather than responding to crimes that have already occurred.
At the present time, crimes reported online must meet the following criteria:

  • The suspect(s) are unknown.
  • Theft under $500 (no firearms)
  • Burglary of Vehicle
  • Criminal Mischief (vandalism) under $500
  • Graffiti under $500
  • Theft of Service under $500
  • Lost Property
