Police want to streamline the process of reporting certain crimes by offering an online process instead of calling the department. The website on the TPD’s homepage will take reports on the following types of crime:

  • Lost or missing personal property. However, for items like a bicycle or a firearm found on your property, TPD wants a call at 785-368-9551 to send an officer to retrieve it and check it into TPD’s lost and found room.
  • Unlawful use of financial information: if someone used your credit card or bank information to purchase goods or services. 
  • Identity theft: if someone used your personal information without your consent. 
  • Property damage under $1,000 in estimated value. Theft of property outside your home under $1,000 in estimated value. Burglaries to homes and theft of firearms, vehicles, ATVs, or boats must be reported directly to an officer by calling TPD.
  • Harassment by phone

The new program allows residents to upload photographs or documents to be collected as evidence.
