DIAL 9-1-1

Welcome to the King County Sheriff's Office Online Reporting System. You will be able to report your incident without waiting and be able to print a copy of the approved report.

To use this online reporting system, each of the following statements must be true:

  • This is not an emergency (If it is, call 9-1-1 immediately).
  • This is not an in-progress crime.
  • This incident occurred within unincorporated King County or within one of our contract cities listed at the bottom of this page.
  • This did not occur on Sound Transit or Metro bus or at a Park & Ride.
  • This did not occur on a state freeway.
  • You are ​not​ reporting a lost or stolen ​firearm.
  • You are the victim of the crime.
  • There are no known suspects.
  • There was no evidence left behind.
  • You have a valid e-mail address.

If you answered no to any of the above, look at our Frequently Asked Questions section or dial our non-emergency line at (206) 296-3311 so we can help you with your report.

If all the above are true, you are ready to file your report online. Turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing your report.

When filling out an online report, fields with a red asterisk * are mandatory.

Replies and report copies will be sent to the e-mail address that you provide. 

Upon completion of the process you will:

  • See the words: "Your online police report has been submitted."
  • Be given a temporary report number (this is not your permanent case number).
  • Receive an e-mail within five days after your report is approved providing you with a permanent case number. A copy of your report will be attached to the e-mail.

Please note:

  • All online reports will be reviewed before they are approved.
  • You will be notified by email if your report does not meet the online reporting criteria.
  • You may be contacted if further investigation of your case is needed.
