Police Offer New Online Incident Reporting System
Posted on 05/15/2020
The Cape Girardeau Police Department has initiated a new online incident reporting system in an effort to offer residents a method for safely and immediately filing reports.

The portal is available at cityofcape.org/incidentreport. To submit a report, please follow the simple prompts in the template.

Reports may be completed 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Any reports filed out through this system will still be assigned to individual officers and investigated.

Residents should still call 911 to report any emergencies. 

To help mitigate and reduce the frequency of unnecessary exposure and spread of COVID-19, the  Department encourages residents to use this system when feasible. This online reporting portal, which will go live on Monday, May 18th, will allow citizens to report crimes that are not an emergency or currently in progress.

Officers will still actively patrol and promptly respond to any in-progress crimes where there is a threat to life, health or property.
