CLEVELAND — Cleveland police want to remind everyone that during Governor Mike DeWine’s stay at home order, you can file a police report for some minor crimes without ever having to come in to one of the stations.

According to police, residents can call 216-621-1234 to speak with someone and file a report for minor crimes over the phone. You can also use the department’s online reporting system, here.

An example of just some of the crimes that can be reported online are:

  • Lost property
  • Petty theft
  • Petty theft shoplifting
  • Property damage
  • Supplemental report

Filing reports over the phone and online keeps foot traffic at the precincts down and the officers healthy, which in turn allows them to keep everyone safe.
