The Owasso Police Department announced a new online police reporting option for the public.
This web based reporting system will allow the public to file incident reports for minor theft, vehicle burglary, lost property, hit and runs and submit crime tips.
The Owasso Police Department told FOX23 they expect this internet based service to be popular among citizens who have come to expect public services to be provided conveniently online.
The service will allow the public to file a report at a time that is best for them without having to wait for an officer to respond or call them back. The public will be able to print a temporary copy of the report immediately upon submission. The report will be reviewed by police personnel and once approved the citizen will receive an email with a copy of their official report attached free of cost.
The report will transfer into the Owasso Police Department’s records management system and receive the same investigation and statistical analysis as if the report had been filed by a police officer. This web based reporting option will allow officers more time to address community needs while keeping pace with public expectations to services via the internet.
The web based crime reporting service is available at www.owassopolice.com
. Users just go to the website with a computer or smart phone and select the “File a Police Report” link to begin the process.
