Filing a Police Report During Coronavirus

Monday, March 23, 2020

Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) facilities will remain open at this time, but to mitigate potential exposure to and spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the MPD is doing its part to limit exposure without interrupting the high level of service provided to our community.

If you need to report a crime, you may not need to report it in person. There are two ways you can report non-violent crimes without coming into direct contact with MPD personnel:

  • File a Police Report Online
    The MPD maintains an online reporting tool for non-emergency incidents that can be accessed by visiting the Citizen Online Reporting Tool (CORT) page.
  • File a Police Report by Phone
    9-1-1 and 3-1-1 calls processed by the Telephone Reporting Unit have expanded.

About the Telephone Reporting Unit

The Office of Unified Communications' Telephone Reporting Unit (TRU) was designed to manage and generate non-emergency incident or offense police reports telephonically for specified event types. Learn more about the TRU.
