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 report will be reviewed by police personnel through the same processes that officers’ reports are reviewed. Once approved, the person filing the report will receive an email confirmation that the report has been approved with a PDF copy of the report attached at no cost.
The web based reporting option will meet the public expectancy to complete services via the internet.
The web based crime reporting service is available through the St. George Police Department Web Page, www.sgcity.org/police; through the “Submit Police Reports” link citizens will be taken to the main page of the website that contains information to help determine if the online reporting system is appropriate under the circumstances.
If you have already filed a police report, whether on-line or through an officer, you can add supplemental information through this same process; for instance, if a citizen had property stolen and completed an initial report, but later realized additional items were missing, they can file a supplement listing the property and they can provide a witness statement.
The online report filing system is NOT intended to be used as a means of reporting crimes that are in progress, situations that are emergencies and require an immediate response, any time possible suspects are known, when property or evidence is present that requires collection by an officer, or for incidents that involve Domestic Violence. In any of these instances, please contact the St. George Police Communications Center, (435) 627-4300, to speak with a dispatcher.
