- At an Area Command located near you that is open for business to the public. These are listed on the table at the end of this section, along with their days and hours of operation.

- By mail by sending a detailed letter to our Correspondence Section; at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, ATTN: Correspondence, 400 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Building C., Las Vegas, NV 89106.
- By telephone some types of reports can be filed by calling the LVMPD non-emergency number at (702) 828-3111 and explaining the circumstances to a call taker who will assign an event number to your case and someone will return your call. Depending on call volume the return calls are made in order by the date and time they are received.
For all cases remember to:
- Gather as much information as you can prior to filing your report.
- Include all of the information relative to the incident such as: date, time, place, all details, include any property and value of lost or stolen property, name(s) of the victim(s).
- List any other information you wish to report specific to this incident.
- Be as thorough as you can as this will be your record of your crime report.
There is no fee for filing a report. All reports will have an Event Number on them. You will need to reference this number when inquiring about your case.
Filing a Traffic Accident Report:
Effective 3/3/2014, traffic accident reports will no longer be filed with the Police Records Bureau or any area command. Pursuant to NRS 484.229, you must complete a SR-1 report with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles to report a traffic accident if a report has not been taken by police. The SR-1 form is available at www.dmvnv.com.
The all area commands may assist you with filing a report, including at the LVMPD Headquarters campus.
