The University of New Mexico has a created a new online system for reporting property crime that is faster and easier. The UNM Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System is designed for anyone who needs to report a non-violent property crime on campus such as auto burglary, lost property, theft or larceny. To file an online police report, visit the UNM Police Department website.
This system will also work for reporting harassing phone calls and vandalism. However, this isn’t a replacement for UNM Police response. If anyone needs an officer and requests one, an officer will be sent.
Using the UNM Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System allows individuals to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free. The online police reporting forms are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new system is not for emergencies. Anyone who has an emergency on campus needs to dial 911.
UNM Police Chief Kathy Guimond says, “This is another tool to assist the police. We think it is a good option for a tech-savvy community and is very easy to understand and use.”
Once the report is received, the reporting person will receive a tracking number via email. The reports will be reviewed by a UNM Police Supervisor. Once approved the reporting person will receive an email showing the report was approved. The reporting person will be able to print their report on line.
