Kenai Police Launch Online Reporting System

first_imgThe system will be monitored by KPD staff and will pass on pertinent information to officers with the main goal of cracking down on local theft. KPD Lt. Ben Langham:“A lot of the crimes that we are seeing, are happening in private residences and of people belongings, but we are also seeing an uptick of retail theft happening in the Kenai area. We are working with our retailers to try and curb the ongoing thefts that are happening.”  People are still expected to call 911 during an emergency, but some types of non-emergency crimes can be reported online. Examples of incidents that are eligible for online reporting include:Animal ComplaintsDrug InformationFraud / Identity TheftHarassmentLost PropertyShoplifts (businesses only)Supplement to BurglarySuspicious ActivityTheftTheft From VehicleThreatsVandalismVehicle Tampering But the impact they hope to make on crime will depend on residents who “see something” then take the step to “say something.” The new online reporting site is now up and running. Residents can go online, report suspicious activity, add photos and video, and remain anonymous if they choose.center_img The site can be accessed on a computer or the browser on a phone.
