How to Report a Crime

You can report a crime by calling your local police department or the Pennsylvania State Police. You can find the telephone number in the telephone book, or some other web based directory program by dialing directory assistance, or by dialing 911, if it is an emergency.

Tell the police exactly what happened. Something that might seem like a small detail could be important. The more you tell the police, the more help you will be giving them to solve the crime. If you have any concerns, especially about your safety, you should let the police know immediately.

You may also want to talk to your local Victim Service Program about reporting the crime.
