Non-Criminal Reporting

The Redlands Police Department would like to remind everyone in our community to report suspicious activity right away. You know your neighborhood best, so if you “See Something, Say Something.”

If you see suspicious activity happening in your area, you can also make an Extra Patrol Request, and a patrol will be conducted in the area.

Additionally, if you are going on vacation, and you’d like to have a patrol done of your home or  business, you can make a Vacation House Check Request.
