, you may be eligible to file a report online. 

Crimes must be reported in the city in which they have occurred.


The Pacifica Police Department is pleased to announce it is now providing a new online police reporting option.  

The Pacifica Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free.
Please confirm the following to find out if online citizen police report filing is right for you:

  • This is not an Emergency?
  • This incident occurred within the Pacifica City limits?
  • There are no known suspects?
  • This did not occur on a State Freeway?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, you are ready to file your report online. Please turn off any pop-up blocking software before filing the report. 

Upon completion of this report process you will:

  • See the words: "Your online police report has been submitted" showing that your police report is complete.
  • Be given a police report case number.
  • Be able to print a copy of the police report to keep for your records.

Please Note:

  • All cases filed using the Citizens Online Police Reporting System will be reviewed.
  • Upon review, if further investigation of your case is needed, you may be contacted.
  • Filing a false police report is a crime.
