Filing A Report


IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY OR CRIME IN PROGRESS, PLEASE CALL 9-1-1.

Filing a police report helps law enforcement officials locate and apprehend criminals, find stolen property and even track crime trends.  The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department offers you the ability to file your report online.  Please learn more below to see if you qualify. 

NOTE:  We can only take reports that occurred in our, Las Vegas, jurisdiction.  We do not take reports that occur in Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, or accidents that occur on the freeway.  The freeway is Nevada Highway Patrol jurisdiction.  You can file a report for internet financial crimes (i.e. online fraud, identity theft) with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) www.ic3.gov.

Telephonic

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 your convenience, many telephonic reports may be completed online with no wait.


Out of State

If you visited Las Vegas and a crime occurred during your visit and you have returned home, you may be eligible to file your report online.  Please review the Online Filing instructions to see if you are eligible.  If not, please contact your local police department and request they complete a courtesy report and mail it to our agency.
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 Collision Report  

Pursuant to NRS 484.229, you must complete a SR-1 report with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles to report a traffic collision if a report has not been taken by police.  The SR-1 form is available at www.dmvnv.com.
If an LVMPD officer responds to a vehicle collision and takes a report, a copy of your report will be available within 7-10 days.
