Online reporting allows citizens to file a police report online using a computer, tablet, smartphone, or kiosk at the Francom Public Safety Building for lower priority calls for service. When a citizen uses the online reporting system, they won’t have to wait for an officer to respond and can get a case number immediately. An example for the use of the online reporting system would be the loss/theft of an Ogden City garbage can. A case number is required to report the loss/theft of the garbage can to the Public Works Department. Instead of waiting for an officer to respond, an individual can file the report online and get the case number immediately. A valid email address and phone number are needed to file an online report.
The online reports are reviewed by officers and sergeants, then sent to detectives if there is any information to follow-up on.
There are certain types of calls that can be reported with the online reporting system, and there are a few questions that need to be answered before one can proceed in the online reporting system.
If you can answer yes to these statements, your case is qualified to file a report online:
1) This is not an emergency.
2) This occurred within Ogden City Limits.
3) There are no known suspects.
4) This did not occur on Interstate 15.
5) This is not occurring right now.
If you answered No to any of the above, call Dispatch at (801) 395-8221.
Obviously, if there is an emergency, please dial 911 to speak with a dispatcher to report the emergency.
