PHOENIX — The Buckeye Police Department has launched a new online system that allows people to file a non-emergency police report.
The system can be used to report incidents including criminal damage, identity theft, loss of property and property watch, according to the website.
People must be at least 18 years old to submit an online report and an email is required.
It is meant for an incident that occurred within the city where no weapon was used to commit the crime and nobody was injured as a result of the incident.
Other circumstances that warrant a non-emergency report are if a theft amount is under $1,000, it wasn’t a motor vehicle accident and the crime did not occur due to race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religious practice, disability or sexual orientation.
The system can also be used if the name, address or identity of the suspect is unknown.
People are urged to contact the Buckeye Police Department at 623-349-6400 if the crime is in progress or 911 if it is an emergency.
Those who complete an online report with the department will be given a temporary tracking number, according to the website.
All cases filed under the online system will be reviewed, and people may be contacted if further investigation is needed.
