The Vail Police Department is pleased to announce a new online form for reporting non-emergency crimes. The form is available on the police website at vailgov.com/police. Once a form is submitted, an officer will make contact with the reporting party within 24 hours.
Police Chief Dwight Henninger says the online form, powered by CrimeWatch Technologies, provides a stay-at-home option to report incidents in Vail without the need to visit the police department in person. This new option also provides a valuable customer service for guests and part-time residents. Henninger says the online service should not discourage any one from calling for an officer at any time if they want to report something in person or over the phone; for emergencies, call 9-1-1.
The online form is available in 10 languages using the language widget at the bottom of the website.
In its ongoing commitment to improve law enforcement access to the Latinx community, the department has also posted a Spanish-language version of its open records request form allowing Spanish speakers to more easily request police records. The Spanish version of the open records request form can be found at: www.vailgov.com//solicitud_de_registros.
Other local online tools with multilingual options include Eagle PD’s online reporting system, accessible here and ECSO’s Crime Stoppers link, through which tips can be forwarded to local agencies.
