San Leandro's police department has launched a new online reporting service that allows the public to complete an online form to report non-violent and "cold" complaints or crimes.
Those wishing to file such reports will no longer have to go to the police station or wait on the telephone to file a non-emergency crime report or crime tip.
You can find out more about this reporting service on the San Leandro Police Department website here.
The following description of the service, listed on the police department's website, is reprinted below:
The online reporting system should only be used to report incidents that do not require immediate police attention. This reporting system is not continuously monitored by police personnel. Using this system will allow you to file a police report at your convenience. You will be able to print a temporary report immediately and you will receive a free copy of the report via email once the report has been reviewed and approved.
Any of the following would NOT be appropriate to report online:
- This is an EMERGENCY situation
- This incident occurred outside the City of San Leandro
- You, or someone you've spoken to, knows who committed the crime
- This incident occurred on a freeway or state highway
- There is potential evidence that can be collected or something was left behind by the suspect
If you answered NO to all of the above questions, you are ready to file your report online. If you answered YES to any of the above questions, please call (510) 577-2740 for an officer to respond to take your report. Feel free to look at our Online Citizen Police Report Frequently Asked Questions section for additional information.

- Custody Order Violations (Late drop-offs or pickup of child, NOT child concealment)
