Online Police Report

Welcome to the Metro Transit Police Department Online Police Reporting System.

If this is an Emergency please call 9-1-1.

Before making an Online Police Report, call Metro Transit Lost & Found at 612-373-3333 to see if your property was turned in.

Using the Online Police Reporting System you can report, submit and print for free the following incidents:

  • Theft from Auto - Property stolen from the interior or exterior of a locked/unlocked motor vehicle. This includes attempted theft (contents of the vehicle have been disturbed but nothing was stolen). If your vehicle was damaged because of the theft, please call for an officer response.
    Stolen vehicles, license plates, catalytic converters, and guns CANNOT be reported online.
  • Lost Property - When property is lost or missing.

If your incident is not listed above, please call the Metro Transit Police Department at 612-349-7200 (choose option 1) to file your report.

Please answer the following series of YES or NO questions. That will assist us in determining if the Police Online Reporting online form is suitable for the incident you wish to report.
