Welcome to the Lincoln Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System. If this is an emergency,  please call 911.

• Theft of Property
• Vandalism

These reports may be filed online if:

• This is not an Emergency
• This incident occurred within the Lincoln city limits

If your report meets all of the criteria above, you are ready to file your report online. Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report.

If your incident is not listed in the category selection list, please call the Lincoln Police Department (emergency 9-1-1; non-emergency 916-645-4040) to file your report.

Upon completion of this report process you will:

• See the words: "Your online police report has been submitted" showing that your police report is complete.
