Online Police Reporting

Qualifications & Process

Using this online citizen police reporting system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free. Please confirm the following to find out if online reporting is right for you:

  • Are you in immediate physical danger?
  • Did the incident occur outside the city limits of Newton?
  • Do you have suspect information that should be promptly investigated?
  • Do you need to speak with an officer?
  • Is there physical evidence that needs to be collected?
  • Is this an emergency or in-progress incident?

If you answered NO to all of the above questions, you are ready to file your report online. If you answered YES to any of these questions please call 911 if it’s an emergency or 641-791-0850 to speak with a police officer. 

Please Note: 

  • All incidents reported online will be reviewed.
  • Upon review, if further investigation of your incident is needed, you may be contacted for additional information.
  • You must be able to provide a valid name, address and telephone number where you can be contacted.

Filing a false police report is a crime.
