Identity Theft and Fraud Reporting Procedures
The Metropolitan Police Department is committed to providing the best customer service possible. The Financial and Cyber Crimes Unit has established a list of guidelines for reporting identity theft and fraud crimes, which are investigated by the unit. Being prepared for this meeting helps reducing the stress and confusion that may arise after the theft. It will also help provide a clear direction for members of the department who are trying to assist you with your case.
Filing an Identity Theft or Fraud Report with the MPD
A report can be made with the MPD in one of two ways.
Report the Theft from Your Home
You may file a report by calling the police (9-1-1) and having a patrol unit respond to your home. An officer will take the report and it will be forwarded to the Financial and Cyber Crimes Unit.
Visit Your District Station
Visit the nearest MPD district station and have an officer take the report. The report will then be forwarded to the Financial and Cyber Crimes Unit for further investigation.
