KPD taking crime reports online
KANNAPOLIS — City residents can report some crimes online now that the Kannapolis Police Department has added the capability to its website.
Reports filed electronically are processed in the same manner as reports taken in person, the agency said in a news release.
Once the report is reviewed and validated by the agency’s Records Division it will, if applicable, be assigned to an officer who will contact the reporting resident during normal business hours. Residents must provide a current or valid email address to report an offense online.
Only certain police reports may be submitted online. They include vandalism/damage to property; communicating threats; larceny/stolen property; lost property; harassing phone calls; littering; information only reports.
Do not use this site to report emergencies. Call 911 or the Police Department’s non-emergency number (704-920-4000) to report a crime in progress or about to happen; domestic violence; fire; injured people; life and death situations; medical emergencies; missing persons or runaways; someone breaking into your home or business; stolen vehicle; suspect who is still on the scene; traffic accidents; any incident where evidence may be collected.
Reports can be made at http://kannapolisp2c.com/p2c/
Filing a false police report is a crime and will be prosecuted under North Carolina law, the agency noted in its news release.
