Why should I file a police report?
Filing a report with police serves as the starting point of a law enforcement investigation to identify and apprehend criminals, recover lost/stolen property, and track crime trends.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) can only take incident reports that occurred within our jurisdiction. If your incident occurred within the City of Henderson, North Las Vegas, or Boulder City, please contact the appropriate police agency to file your report. If you are reporting an accident that occurred on the freeway, please contact the Nevada State Police.
Filing a false police report is a crime! Anyone who knowingly makes a false report that a felony or misdemeanor has been committed is guilty of a misdemeanor per Nevada Revised Statute 207.280.

How do I file a report if I do not live in Clark County?
If a crime occurred during your visit to Las Vegas and you have already returned home, you may be eligible to file your report online. Please review "How do I file a report Online?".
If the incident does not meet the criteria for Online Reporting, you may:
- Contact your local law enforcement agency and request they complete a Courtesy Report and send a copy to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
- Once the Courtesy Report is received by LVMPD, the crime report will be assigned an LVMPD Event Number and entered in our records management system. A copy of the report will be sent to you for your records.
Occasionally, some local law enforcement agencies will not complete Courtesy Reports. Under these circumstances, LVMPD will accept a handwritten, signed letter from the victim. The letter must contain all pertinent incident details. Please refer to "What information do I need to file a report?"
- Once the letter is received by LVMPD, the crime report will be assigned an LVMPD Event Number and entered in our records management system. A member of LVMPD may contact you for additional information. A copy of the report will be sent to you for your records.
