All information you provide goes directly from your computer or device to the Austin Police Department and may be subjected to public records release.
Once you submit your report online, you will receive an email notification with a Temporary Report Number. The report will then be reviewed by APD Central Records and it will either be accepted or rejected. If your report is accepted, you will be given a permanent APD Case Number.
