Welcome to the Salinas Police Department’s Online Police Reporting system. The purpose of this site is to allow Salinas residents to file a report online without having to come into the police department. This website should never be used to report an emergency, a crime in progress, or any type of injury. Once you file a report, a temporary incident number will be assigned until the report is reviewed. Once approved, you will receive an actual incident number and have the ability to print a copy for your records. You must have a valid email.
For emergencies, call 9-1-1. Any situation requiring a police officer, call 831-758-7321. The Anonymous tip line should not be used to report any emergencies or request police assistance. Filing a false police report is a crime.
