Lubbock police unveil high tech way to report certain crimes

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police on Wednesday formally announced a new online crime reporting system. The system does not replace 9-1-1 and the instructions for this new service are very clear that in an emergency "please call 9-1-1."

The system specifies 11 crimes that can now be reported online including harassment, identity theft, lost property, vandalism and others.

You can access the system online at: www.lubbockpolice.com/copLogic/start-report.aspx.

The police website says, "Using this online citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free."

In addition to not being for emergencies, there is another limitation; police are asking that it not be used for crimes where there is a known suspect.

LPD says, "A known suspect is when you or someone else knows the person or where to find the person who committed the crime or the license plate number of the vehicle the suspect(s) were in."

Police say the new system will save officers time by not having to meet face to face with people to report certain crimes.
