File a Police Report

In an emergency, always call 9-1-1. For non-emergencies, call us at (815) 726-2491.

There are three alternative methods of filing a police report. Victims can visit the front desk of either police station, call the telephone reporting unit, or file a report online.

Many types of police reports can now be filed over the phone or electronically. In most cases, you can file an online or telephone report for the offenses of: accidental damage to property, theft under $300, criminal damage to property under $300, civil matters, lost property, nuisance complaints, animal complaints, and information for police. Generally, when one of these crimes occurred and a safety threat doesn’t exist, these reports are eligible for an alternative response.

Your information will be sent directly to the Drug Unit, and will remain anonymous if you prefer.
