WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The West Monroe Police Department has unveiled a new online crime reporting option for the public.

The site will allow people to report certain crime and incident types at the West Monroe Police Departments website: www.WMPD.net

The site is NOT for reporting "Crimes in Progress" or ANY type of emergency.

• Bicycle theft (no dollar limit)
• Any Theft (value under $500)
• Criminal Mischief, Damage to Property
• Lost/mislaid personal property
• Anonymous Tips
• Traffic- or pedestrian-related concern
 

Currently, an officer would respond to these incidents, interview witnesses and then compile a police report. While that remains an option, the online reporting site can save time for both the reporting party and WMPD officers. For example, WMPD received and dispatched officers to 62 incidents of a lost item last year. This is an example of when our new on-line reporting option can be utilized. 

Users can upload their case summary, possible suspect info and incident photos. The information will transfer into WMPD's records management system and be investigated in the same manner as conventional reports filed by police officers.
