Report Berkeley Crimes Online

Community members can report certain crimes online, a service that’s particularly helpful when victims want to document crimes or need records for insurance purposes.

The Berkeley Police online reporting service is to be used when there are no leads, witnesses or suspect descriptions. It can be used to report harassing phone calls, identity theft, theft, auto burglaries, and vandalism to a home or vehicle.

Upon completing the online report, users will immediately receive a temporary case number.  Reports are reviewed within two business days.  Upon approval, you will receive a new case number and a PDF copy of the report you filed, which you may use for your own purposes. 

The Berkeley Police Department’s Online Crime Reporting System may be used to report the following crimes:

Harassing Phone Calls:  Repeated, disruptive or unwanted calls from an unknown source; re-occurring hang-up calls.

Identity Theft:  Obtaining someone else’s personal identifying information and using it to get credit, goods, or services.

Theft:  Your unattended property is taken without your permission by a person you did not see. 

Theft from Vehicle & Auto Burglary:  Property is stolen from an unlocked motor vehicle or car is broken into and items were stolen (a report may be reported regardless if the vehicle was locked, entry was made, or whether or not anything was taken.)

Vandalism (Home or Business):  The act of defacing, changing or modifying public or private property-graffiti, knocking over a mailbox, rocks thrown through windows, causing permanent damage. 

Vandalism to a Vehicle:  Tampering with a vehicle-Keying/Scratching, breaking a window, side mirror, or wipers.

Consider filing your report with Berkeley Police Department’s Online Crime Reporting System.
