Reporting Crimes in Progress

If you are a victim or a witness to any in-progress criminal offense, protect yourself first. Report the incident as soon as possible. You should attempt to provide as much of the following information as possible.

  1. Nature of the incident. MAKE SURE the officer/dispatcher understands that the incident is in progress!
  2. Location of the incident.
  3. Description of the suspects involved.
  4. Injuries that have occurred.
  5. Description of any weapons involved.
  6. Description of property involved.

Stay on the line with the officer/dispatcher until help arrives. Keep the officer/dispatcher updated on any changes so responding units can be updated. Even if you can not communicate, keep the line open. The officer/dispatcher may be able to learn more about what is happening.
