Seattle criminal defense attorneys and Bellevue criminal defense lawyers may be getting an increase in call volume in the not so distant future. Certain crimes can now be reported on-line in King County by going to www.ReportToSheriff.org. A crime reported: (1) cannot be an emergency, (2) cannot be a crime in progress, (3) must have no known suspects, (4) must have no evidence left behind, and (5) must not have occurred on a freeway, Sound Transit or on a Metro bus. Reportable crimes may include – among other things – car prowls, vandalism, thefts, identity thefts, and narcotics violations.
Criminal on-line reporting is for residents of unincorporated King County and the twelve communities that contract for police services from the King County Sheriff’s Office. Criminal on-line reporting was developed to reduce frustration and wait times for victims. Only crime victims who have an active e-mail address can use the system. In addition, the site authorizes residents to print their reports/ complaints so as to expedite insurance claims by allowing people to send the printed documentation to their insurance providers.
