The Durango Police Department has deployed a Community Incident Reporting Solution to allow community members to file police reports online. The system is designed to provide a fast and efficient way for residents to report a variety of low priority incidents, which are crimes not in progress.
The Report Incident link is located at www.DurangoGov.org/Police. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on any web-enabled device. Residents may also call dispatch at 385-2900. The caller will be asked questions to identify the nature of the situation and whether it may be reported online or if an officer needs to take the call. If the caller is referred to the online reporting system but prefers to speak to an officer, the caller may make that request.
Through the online reporting system, residents can report: abandoned vehicles, animal complaints, barking dogs, code enforcement issues, damage to vehicles, graffiti, house watch, lost property, phone scams/solicitation, suspicious activity (not in progress), theft (not in progress), trespassing (not in progress) and vehicle entered (nothing taken).
An incident number will be given, and copies of the report can be requested. A desk officer will review the report and determine if follow-up is needed.
The online reporting option does not take the place of calling dispatch in an emergency situation. Residents should call 911 or 385-2900 to report a crime in progress or where life or property may be at risk.
The LexisNexis Desk Officer Reporting System enhances the Durango Police Department’s service to the community and improves efficiencies within the department. The system generates more accurate reports and reduces officer response time by 10% to 30%. It also reduces administrative costs and improves allocation of resources.
