Waterloo police using online system for minor crime reports

By – Associated Press – Thursday, March 14, 2019

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) – Waterloo police are offering to take online reports about minor matters and crimes.

The program lets residents use an online form to notify police about harassment, lost property, thefts and other minor offenses. The form can be found on the department website.

Maj. Joe Leibold says the new procedure will make the department more accessible, increase efficiency and decrease police response times to more important calls.

He says residents reporting crimes in progress or emergencies should still call 911.
