What is the CORP PROGRAM?

The Seattle Police Department Community Online Crime Reporting Program (CORP) allows you to:

  • PRINT a copy of the temporary report immediately.

  • RECEIVE a printable copy of the final police report for no charge.

  • FILE the report with your insurance company.


The following crimes usually do not require an in-person police response and can be filed online:

  • Property Destruction

  • Identity Theft

  • Car Prowls (under $1500)

  • Auto Accessories
    (under $1500)

  • Theft of Property (under $500)

  • Narcotics Activity

  • Graffiti (must upload photos)

If the crime you need to report is not listed, you cannot file it online. Please call the non-emergency number 206-625-5011.


All cases filed within this system will be reviewed.

Most cases will NOT be investigated.

If further investigation of your case is needed, you may be contacted for follow-up or additional details.


Before filing your report, visit our Frequently Asked Questions section.

If you have additional questions, email


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.


You must confirm that the following are true before you can file a crime online:

1. This is NOT an emergency. Definition

2. The incident occured WITHIN the city limits. Definition

3. There are no KNOWN SUSPECTS. Definition

4. Your web browser is set up to use this application. Definition


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
