JPD introduces new system for residents to file police reports

Updated:

Joplin police say they have a more efficient way for residents to report crimes.  It's an online system, where people can report harassing phone calls, lost property, vandalism, identity theft, and theft from a vehicle.

These types of crimes generally involve circumstances where a suspect is unknown.  Police say this is a way to make the department's database of crime as thorough as possible.

"It we have crimes against people, someone is being actively assaulted or actively hurt, lets say it's a crime in progress, we're going to continue to ask our citizens to call 911.  If it's going to be a crime involving narcotics or weapons, or some type of evidence, we're going to continue to ask our citizens to call 911," says Lieutenant Charla Geller.

"It's allowing the citizens to tell us where the crime occurred, if they so choose to do that, they can go there and have their own police report with their own police report number telling us where the crime occurred, when the crime occurred," says Lieutenant Geller.

Police remind people that filing a false police report is a crime.
