Redlands Police Department adds Zoom crime reporting option


As part of our continuing efforts to increase accessibility to the public and best serve the needs of a diverse community, the Redlands Police Department has added a virtual crime reporting option, using Zoom. The virtual crime reporting option will supplement the department’s current online alternative as well as traditional in-person and telephone reporting.

Criteria for reporting crime through Zoom are the same as the online reporting system currently available on the department website: the reported crime is not an emergency; the incident occurred within Redlands City limits; there are no known suspects; and the crime did not occur on a State freeway.

Community members interested in reporting a crime via Zoom may visit the department’s web page at and scroll down to “Schedule a Zoom Meeting to Report a Crime.” Zoom meetings are currently available between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

Once a request is submitted, the reporting party will receive an email that includes a link for the Zoom meeting. During the Zoom meeting, an officer will take the information from the reporting party and, if warranted, take a crime report and provide a case number along with instructions how to obtain a copy of the report.

For emergencies or crimes in progress, residents should call 911. Non-emergency crimes may be reported at the department’s business line at (909) 798-7681, ext. 1, or online using the Redlands Police Department’s CopLogic reporting system at Suspicious activity and tips can be reported using the City of Redlands 311 mobile app available for Android, iPhones, and iPads.
