Lincoln police launched an on-line reporting system Wednesday morning.
It's available 24–hours a day on the department's website. Reportable incidents are limited to theft, loss, and damage totaling less than $500.
Some examples include vandalism, damage or stolen property.
"This way they can wind up doing it at any particular point in time. They can be sitting there watching TV if they want to and report it on their cell phone or laptop computer. It's a convenience and like I said, we're trying to encourage citizens to report any of these things to us," Chief Jim Peschong said.
Police say this will allow you to submit and print a copy of the police report quickly and for free. Accidents and crimes involving a suspect, weapon, or injury can't be reported on-line.
