Public Involvement

The Online Reporting System is designed for citizens and victims of certain crimes to save time by reporting non-emergency events. Online Reports are reviewed by a supervisor.  A case number is generated and returned to you via email (typically within 72 hours) and you can print a copy of the police report at no cost.

Online Reporting cannot be used for felonies, crimes where the suspect is known, if the crime address is unknown or if the value of something stolen or damaged exceeds $5,000.

An online report is a good option if a police report number is needed for insurance purposes.

Using the Edmonds Police Department Online Reporting System, you can report the following incidents:

 Graffiti Theft  Hit & Run Accidents
 Lost Property Vehicle Prowling  Abandoned Vehicles
 Vandalism Theft from Vehicle  Crime or Drug Tips

When To File an Online Report

The online report allows you to submit a report if the following requirements are met:

  • The incident is not an emergency
  • There are no known suspects
  • The incident occurred inside the City of Edmonds
  • You have a valid email address
  • Item(s) were lost, stolen or damaged
  • Dollar amount is under $5,000
