Now you can report crimes by phone. Just call (313) 267-4600. It's easy! Call to
- Report stolen property.
- Report theft from home, garage, or yard.
- Report stolen license plates.
- Report car-break-ins.

- Report any problem that is not going on right now.
If the Police don't know about crimes in our area, then they won't assign officers to catch the thieves. You have to report ALL crimes so the Police know. Calls to the Police Crime Unit go into a computer tracking system that gives the police the information they need to help us help ourselves.
Always Call! More Calls, More Attention!
The police want you to call about anything that disturbs you and makes you feel unsafe. Our reporting helps police track crime patterns. They assign police to areas with more calls.
Use the Boston-Edison Hotline
If you are a victim of a crime within the last 12 months, we want to hear from you.
