Reporting a Crime

If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

Request a copy of complaint report:

If you have reported a crime or lost property and need a copy of your report, you may request a verification report by completing a Verification of Crime/Lost Property Report. A Verification Report is not the same as a complaint report.

A verification report costs $15.00, but this fee is waived if you are the victim of the crime. The verification report is also available at any police precinct, housing police service area, or transit district.


Submit the Verification Report form in a stamped self-addressed envelope and the non-refundable $15.00 service fee, if applicable. The envelope should be mailed to:
