The purpose of this form is to allow Houston citizens to conveniently file police reports from home, work, or anywhere with internet access. After completing the necessary information you will receive an actual incident number, and you will be able to print the report for your records.
These web sites should never be used to report an emergency, a crime in progress, or any type of injury. For emergencies, call 9-1-1. For any other situation that requires the response of a police officer, call 713-884-3131.
