[ARCHIVED] Police Roll Out Community Online Crime Reporting Tool

SSP Online Crime Reporting NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-June 4, 2020-McGruff the Crime Dog® taught millions of people that the police can’t fight crime alone and now the Steamboat Springs Police Department (SSPD) has a new way for individuals to assist by reporting minor crime incidents through an online process.

“This feature is an additional way that the department is trying to provide expanded services to our community and visitors,” stated Steamboat Springs Police Commander Jerry Stabile. “Reporting crime quickly is essential and having an option available 24 hours a day, seven days a week is a significant asset.”

Through the online system, individuals can log reports across a range of incidents that span harassing phone calls, lost property, theft, vandalism, vehicle burglary and vehicle tampering. Specific criteria are listed on the website for each incident type in order to report online.  In addition, tips can be shared with SSPD for traffic complaints and informational reports.

All cases filed using the Citizens Online Police Reporting System will be reviewed. If further investigation is required, a police officer will contact you. Upon completion, a police report case number will be issued, and individuals may purchase a copy of their report at the same time for their files.

This system is for crime that took place in the City of Steamboat Springs. Incidents outside the city or on state freeways should be reported to the respective municipality and Colorado State Patrol, respectively.

If a firearm is involved, individuals should contact the non-emergency number at 970.879.1144 to file a police report instead of using the online resource. If your incident is an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Launched this week, the new online system is currently available in both English and Spanish.
