Champaign Police announce new online system for reporting non-emergency crimes


CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — The community now has a new way to report crime in the area to Champaign Police.

In a news release, officials said they launched an improved online reporting pilot program. This program allows people to report non-emergency crimes online instead of having an officer dispatched to that location.

“Many non-emergency crimes do not need an initial police response to be reported, and our new online reporting service will provide a more efficient manner for community members to report an incident and request police follow-up,” said Interim Chief of Police Matthew Henson. “This will help officers stay focused on the immediate needs of the community while still allowing individuals the option to submit a police report for review.”

You can submit reports online for the following:

  • Custody order violations
  • Harassing phone calls
  • Identity theft
  • Lost property
  • Theft
  • Vehicle Burglary
  • Traffic complaints
  • Vehicle tampering

After you submit your report, police will determine the best course of action. You will be able to print a temporary copy of the report. You must have a valid email address to submit online reports.
