Police Incident Reporting Goes Online for Citizens

September 2, 2011

The Mesa Police Department is proud to announce it is providing a new online police reporting option for the public. This web-based reporting system will allow the public to file certain incident types (Shoplifting, Theft, Identity Theft, Hit & Run and Lost Property) over the Internet at their convenience. The Mesa Police Department expects this Internet-based reporting service to be very popular among citizens who have come to expect police services to be provided immediately and conveniently online.

The service will allow the public to file a report at a time that is best for them, without having to wait for an officer to respond or call them back. The public will be able to print a temporary copy of the report upon submitting the report. The report will be reviewed by police personnel and, once approved, the filing person will receive an e-mail with a copy of the report attached without cost. The report will transfer into the Mesa Police Departments Records Management System and receive the same investigation and statistical analysis ability, as if the report had been filed by a police officer.

The web-based reporting option will allow officers more time to address community needs, while keeping pace with public expectancy to complete services via the Internet. The service began on September 1, 2011 and can easily be found by going to the Mesa Police Department website at www.mesaaz.gov/police
