ANN ARBOR — The Ann Arbor Police Department announced Monday that it has launched an online citizen reporting system that enables citizens to report minor crimes online. The reports may be filed at www.a2gov.org/police.
This system means that citizens no longer have to drive downtown to file a report in person, and the police department can focus departmental resources on more urgent matters. These reports typically do not require a police interview or follow up investigation but they are often needed for insurance claims or other matters. The online reporting system is easy to use and available 24 hour a day. The following types of reports can be made on line:
* Harassing phone calls — You are receiving numerous “hang-up” phone calls by an unknown caller * Theft — Your property was taken by an unknown suspect. There are no witnesses to the incident. * Vandalism — Your property was damaged by an unknown suspect. There are no witnesses to the incident * Identify theft- An unknown suspect uses your personal information to obtain credit or make purchases on your credit card out of city or state. * Lost or damaged property * Private property traffic crashes — A vehicle is left parked, unattended and you return to find that the vehicle has been struck.
Please note that new hours are now in effect for the Ann Arbor Police Services Unit records section, detective bureau administration office, property unit and police payroll office. These units will be closed to the public on Fridays. The offices will be open to the public Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with the exception of city government holidays.
