By  | 

TOPEKA (WIBW)-- Topeka Police revamped its website, to let you report more crimes online.

You can submit reports online for identity theft, harassment and criminal damage. Plus missing property or theft under $1,000.

They still want to come to your house for home or car burglaries.

Lt. Andrew Beightel says your report will be assigned to an officer or detective and you'll get a call back.

Lt. Beightel says it's a more efficient process for everyone.

"For one we want to make sure the community has any all ways to communicate with us. If you don't want to speak with an officer then you can do this over the internet. Gives us another option for the community to reach out and speak with us," Beightel said.

To file a report online, go to www.topeka.org/TPD and click the button on the upper right.
