E-Police reporting

Welcome to the Santa Ana Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System. If this is an emergency, please call 911. The citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the report for free. Please confirm the following information to find out if online citizen police report filing is right for you:

  • This is NOT an Emergency?
  • There are NO known suspects OR workable suspect descriptions?
  • The incident occurred within the Santa Ana city limits?
