Online Reporting

The Online Reporting System is designed for citizens to provide crime tips and saves time for victims of non-emergent crimes. Crime tips are routed to the appropriate unit for processing while Online Reports are reviewed by an officer who generates and returns a case number (typically within 72 hours).

Online Reporting cannot be used for felonies, crimes where the suspect is known, if the crime address is unknown or if the value of something stolen or damaged exceeds $5,000. An online report is a good option if a police report number is needed for insurance purposes.

Crime tips may be submitted through the online reporting system when you have not been victimized but believe you have information that a crime has been committed.  An easier system to submit tips is via e-mail or by phone at 425-257-8450.

When To File An Online Report

The online report allows you to submit a report if the following requirements are met:

  • The incident is not an emergency
  • There are no known suspects
  • The incident occurred inside the City of Everett
  • You have a valid email address
  • Item(s) were lost, stolen or damaged
  • Dollar amount is under $5,000

Report Serious Incidents

To report more significant crimes, found property or if you need an officer to contact you for a loss of $5,000 or more, call 911.

Report Special Traffic Collisions

To report a traffic collision that is not investigated by the police, contact the Washington State Patrol.


The online reporting option was created by Snohomish County 911, the dispatch center that contracts with Everett.
