Most cases will NOT be investigated.
If further investigation of your case is needed, you may be contacted for follow-up or additional details.

If the crime is still in progress or it is an emergency situation, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Filing a false police report IS A CRIME.
FILE A REPORT ONLINE
You must confirm that the following are true before you can file a crime online:
The CORP system is intended for non-emergency incidents in which the suspect is not known. So, if you or someone else saw who did this, or any person, animal, or property is in immediate danger call 9-1-1 immediately!
If a crime took place outside of the City of Seattle please call the police department for that area.
There is one exception to this: Identity Theft. If you are a resident of Seattle, Identity Theft can be reported to Seattle Police no matter which city or where in the world it occurred.
When you or someone else knows the person, where to find the person, has a detailed description of the person who committed the crime, or even the license plate number of the vehicle the suspect(s) were in - this is considered a known suspect. Reports with a known suspect require investigation by an officer, either in person or by phone.
After you complete a report, you will see the words "Your Online Report Has Been Submitted" and immediately will be given a temporary transaction number. Your report will be reviewed within 5 business days. If your report is approved, you will be sent an email with a copy of the report to keep for your records or file with insurance.
You will have the ability to file online supplemental reports. You will need the temporary transaction (a T followed by eight digits) of the original CORP-filed report, or the police report number you received when your report was taken by an officer, or approved online. The police report number will begin with the year of the report followed by six digits (e.g., 2010-000017). If after five days you have not received your report, please send an email to SPD-CORP@Seattle.gov.
