Download a Household Property Form (PDF or DOC). The purpose of the form is for a resident to document stolen property that is taken during a burglary or theft. Residents may print the form and record the missing property while waiting for an officer to arrive. Then, the resident gives the form to the officer upon arrival at the scene; this will save time and help with a more complete report. Call the dispatch office at 356-6020 to make a report.
