Tyler, TX (KETK) — On Wednesday, the Tyler Police Department announced it will be providing a new online police reporting option for the public.
The service will allow the public to file a report at a time that is best for them, without having to wait for an officer to respond or call them back. The public will be able to print a temporary copy of the report upon submitting the report.
The report will be reviewed by police personnel and once approved the person filing will receive an e-mail with a copy of the report attached without cost.
The report will transfer into the Tyler Police Departments records management system and receive the same investigation and statistical analysis ability as if the report had been filed by a police officer.
This web based reporting system will allow the public to file certain incident types ( theft, theft from open garage or shed, vehicle burglary, harassment, criminal mischief, graffiti and lost property ) over the internet at their convenience.
The new reporting option will allow officers more time to address community needs while keeping pace with the public expectancy to complete services via the internet.
Officials expect this internet based reporting service will be very popular among citizens who have come to expect police services to be provided immediately and conveniently online.
The Tyler Police Department will be using the Desk Officer Online Reporting System from San Ramon, California based software company Coplogic, Inc (www.Coplogic.com ).
The reporting service is now available at www.Tylerpolice.com .
