WORKING WITH YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY

Remember, you can be the EYES and EARS of your local law enforcement agency. Crime prevention in the community is a combined effort of the community and law enforcement agency. When talking with your local law enforcement agency remember:

A. Tell only what you actually saw or know.

  • If you have something to tell them that you are not sure of or did not really see
  • Be accurate and tell only what you saw. If the information is a suspicion, tell them it is a suspicion or guess.

B. Do not EXAGGERATE -- keep the information as factual as possible.

C. If at any time you remember something, write it down immediately, and get the information to the local law enforcement as soon as possible.

D. To complete the process, you must be available at all times to be interviewed or identify a suspect. This may include going to testify in court.

E. Remember, full cooperation is necessary, along with any and/or all bits of information needed to solve the case or get a conviction.

HOW TO REPORT A CRIME

Whenever you see a crime about to take place, or in the process, or after the prime has been committed, call the local Police Department IMMEDIATELY.

JUST DIAL "91-1-"

Once you have made the "9-1-1" call, do exactly as the 9-1-1 operator tells you. Answer all the questions as best as you can.

A. Upon arrival of the police, tell them exactly what happened. Tell them only what you really saw or know (don't tell them what you think or may have happened). Tell them what - when - where - how, and the who and why of the crime.

B. Give the best possible description of the suspect(s). If possible: sex, age, weight, height, hair, color of eyes, race, clothing; also marks, scars, tattoos.

C. Description of vehicle (and direction of travel when leaving): license number, color, model and year, make.
