The Lincoln Police Department is committed to providing quality police services that promote a safe and secure community. Online reporting is provided for the convenience of the victim and is available for only a small segment of crime types. NOTE: If a crime is capable of being reported online by the citizen, it can also be taken by an officer through a dispatched call for service. To determine if online reporting is right for you please review the following guide:

Online reporting is NOT available if you answer yes to any of these questions:
  • Is this an EMERGENCY situation? (call 9-1-1)
  • Is this a crime in progress?
  • Is anyone physically hurt or immediately threatened?
  • Did this crime occur outside the City of Lincoln?
  • Is the person reporting this crime less than 18 years of age?
  • Are there any known suspects? (includes vague descriptions or vehicle license numbers)
  • Is the value of the loss or damage $1,500 or more?
  • Was a weapon involved (gun, knife, or other)?
  • Is this a motor vehicle accident?
  • Did the suspect break into your house, garage or vehicle?
  • Do you want an officer to respond in person?

If you responded yes to any of these questions or are still unsure if online reporting is right for you please call 9-1-1 if it is an emergency, or for non-emergency situations call 402-441-6000 for assistance.
