Citizens' Online Police Reporting System




For language translation assistance when filing a police report, please contact (562) 570-7260.

The LBPD’s Online Police Reporting System allows you to submit a police report online in the below categories:

What types of reports can be filed online:

  • Lost Property
  • Theft or Attempt Theft
    • Note: if the theft/attempted theft occurred in a residence or business, in a garage, or in an underground parking structure, it is a BURGLARY or attempted burglary, not a theft, and cannot be filed online.
  • Vandalism
    • Note: if the vandalism involves multiple vehicles or multiple properties, you cannot file the report online.
  • Hit and Run – parked vehicle 
  • Annoying or Harassing Phone Calls
    • Note: if you believe that you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

What types of reports cannot be filed online:

  • Violent crimes
  • Financial crimes or identity theft 
  • Hate crimes 
  • Theft of firearms, passports, medication, or vehicle registration tags
  • Theft or attempted theft of property valued over $5,000
  • Crimes that occurred outside the City of Long Beach


The online reporting system does not allow for any photo or video evidence to be submitted.

  • If you have any evidence that may lead to the possible identification of a suspect, you need to call Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 to have an officer respond to take your report. 
  • If you have photos of property damage or other supporting documentation, please list that in the narrative of your report.

If your incident is not included in the above categories, please contact Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 to request that a police officer be dispatched to your location. For more information, please refer to the “Frequently Asked Questions” link above.

 To submit a report online:

  • The crime must have occurred in the City of Long Beach
  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must have a valid e-mail address

Please answer the following questions. Your answers will determine whether you meet the criteria to file a report online.

 Yes No      Is this an emergency? (If yes, please call 911 immediately)
 Yes No      Do you have specific information or evidence regarding the suspect(s) who committed this crime?

Meaning you or another person witnessed the suspect commit the crime. If so, you may not file this report online. (Suspecting someone of committing the act is not the same as witnessing the act itself.)

 If you suspect someone committed the act, but did not witness the person doing so, you may file this report online and include your suspicions along with the person's information in the narrative of your report.
 Yes No      Do you have physical evidence in your possession? For example, video, digital evidence, ID, blood, clothing, or tool used to commit crime.

If you have answered NO to all of the above questions, please click “Submit” to continue to the Online Reporting System.

PLEASE NOTE: All personal information shared is secured and encrypted for your protection and will be used for criminal justice purposes only.

Filing a false police report is a crime! Every person who knowingly makes a false report that a felony or misdemeanor has been committed is guilty of a misdemeanor per 148.5 (a) of the California Penal Code.
