Hilliard Police Launches Online Reporting Option

Posted October 16, 2018 in Police by Mary Smith

Hilliard police is now offering a new option for residents who need to file a police report for specific low-level crimes.

The Hilliard Division of Police’s new Online Reporting system — available on the City’s website: hilliardohio.gov — allows the public to submit reports when it is convenient for the resident.

To use the online option, the crime must have occurred within the City of Hilliard or Norwich Township. There must also be no known suspects or leads in the crime.

The following crimes can be reported online: Crash on private property, criminal damaging, criminal mischief, identity theft, lost property, menacing, telecommunications harassment and theft. Residents can also use the system to request traffic enforcement, a House Watch, or a public appearance.

If you wish to report any other crime, please call our dispatchers at the non-emergency number: 614-876-7321. If the crime is an emergency, call 911.

After you’ve submitted your report, you’ll receive an email immediately confirming your submission with a tracking number. If your report is approved, it will be issued a case number and you will receive a PDF copy as an attachment in your email within 1-3 business days.

You’ll be notified via email of any problems with your report.

Reports can still be filed traditionally by speaking to an officer in person. Residents may stop by the police station to speak to an officer, or call the Division’s communications center at 614-876-7321 to request an officer come to their location.

If you have questions about your online report, or need additional help, let us know by emailing policeinfo@hilliardohio.gov.
