The Riley County Police Department announced live on KMAN at 7:30 Friday morning, the launch of an online crime reporting service to community members of Manhattan and Riley County. This announcement comes on the one year anniversary of the department’s newly launched website (www.RileyCountyPolice.org).
Online Crime Reporting was tested by the department over the past several months and with this launch the department stands by this efficient form of reporting to police. Not all crime reporting is accepted through the service and the department wishes to continue sending officers to crimes that contain a suspect, evidence, injuries, or an emergency of some kind.
“We are really excited to offer this service. It’s going to make filing a report with us much easier for a lot of our community. You can even file a report from a mobile device.” –Kari Breault, Records Management Supervisor.
Currently RCPD is accepting online crime reports for the following crimes (those which do not involve an emergency and occurred within Manhattan or Riley County. The suspects must be unknown and the incident should not have involved a gun):
- Criminal Damage to Property (under $1,000.00)
- Criminal Damage to a Vehicle (under $1,000.00)
- Harassment by Phone
- Identity Theft
- Theft under $1,000.00 not including medication or weapons
- Theft from Vehicle (under $1,000.00)
- Supplement (only if the initial report was filed online)
In order to file an online report, users must have a valid e-mail address and access to the internet. For more information about online crime reporting with the Riley County Police Department visit www.RileyCountyPolice.org and click on the “Report of Crime Online” button.
