Springfield Police Implement New Online Reporting System
On January 1, 2019, the Springfield Police Department implemented a new system for citizens to file online police reports. The form can be accessed directly through springfieldmo.gov/3791/File-Online-Police-Supplemental-Report. Citizens can also access the new form on SPD’s website (http://www.springfieldmo.gov/spd) via the red left-hand sidebar button labeled “Report a Concern” or through the “How do I…” drop-down menu.
Citizens can file online police reports for a number of incidents including Stealing, Forgery, Fraud, Harassment, Identify Theft, Lost (or Found) Property, Vandalism, Graffiti as well as Supplemental reports to add information to reports already filed with SPD.
Once an online police report is completed, you will be e-mailed a tracking number. This is not a police case number. An official police case report number will be assigned and e-mailed to you once the report has been reviewed and approved. Upon review, if further information is needed, you may be contacted. An e-mail address is required to file an online report.
You cannot file a report online if:
-it is an emergency (Please call 911)
-the crime occurred outside the Springfield City limits
-you are reporting the theft of a gun, license plates, or a motor vehicle
-there is any physical evidence that needs to be collected
-the incident occurred on a State Highway
If you are submitting a Crime Stoppers tip please visit www.P3tips.com.
For questions please contact Springfield Police at 417-864-1810 or e-mail [email protected]
