Tallahassee, Florida --

The Tallahassee Police Department is proud to announce it will be providing a new online police reporting option for the public. The web based reporting system will allow the public to file certain incident types (minor theft, delayed vehicle burglary, lost property, harassing phone calls, etc.) over the Internet at their convenience. The Tallahassee Police Department expects this Internet based reporting service to be very popular among citizens who have come to expect police services to be provided immediately and 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 upon submitting the report. The report will be reviewed by police personnel and once approved the filing person will receive an email with a copy of the report attached without cost. The report will transfer into the Tallahassee Police Department's records management system and receive the same investigation and statistical analysis ability 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 the public expectancy to complete services via the Internet.
The web based crime reporting service is available at the website below.

    At first glance this looks like a wonderful idea. But then I hear the 911 operator saying "Have you checked our website?" *first* inside my head when I call for help. Maybe not such a good idea after all . . .
