The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce it will be providing a new online police reporting option for the public. This web based reporting system will allow the public to file reports for certain incident types (minor theft, vehicle burglary, lost property, hit & run, crime tips, etc.) over the internet at their convenience. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office expects this internet based reporting service to be very popular among citizens who have come to expect police services to be provided immediately and conveniently online.
The service will allow the public to file a report at a time that is convenient for them without having to wait for a deputy to respond or call them back. The public will be able to print a temporary copy of the report upon submitting the report. The report will be reviewed by Sheriff’s Office personnel and once approved, the filing person will receive an email with a copy of the report attached without cost. The report will transfer into the Indian River county Sheriff’s Office records management system and receive the same investigative and statistical analysis as if the report had been filed by a deputy.
This web based reporting option will allow deputies more time to address community needs while keeping pace with the public’s expectancy to complete services via the internet.
The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office will be using the Desk Officer Online Reporting System from San Ramon, California based software company Coplogic, Inc. (www.coplogic.com).
The web based crime reporting service is available at http://www.ircsheriff.org/start-report.html
