April Online Crime Reporting Stats

In April, 206 reports were filed online using our online crime reporting system (called CopLogic). You can view the program here. The most common crime type reported (about 40%) was petty theft. However, given the increase in identity theft cases last month the second most reported crime online in April was identity theft at 18%. This was followed by vehicle burglary, vandalism and lost property. All other eligible crime types were under 5%.

The report system is estimated to save $7,000-9,000/month in staff time.
