Online Citizen Reporting System

Frequently Asked Questions - Kansas City Police Department Citizen Reporting System
What is a known suspect and when am I eligible to submit a report?

A known suspect is when you or someone else knows the identity of the person(s), knows where to find the person(s) who committed the crime, or obtained the suspect’s full or partial license plate A photo of an unidentified person does not qualify as “known” suspect information.  A color or make of a vehicle is not “known” suspect information.  A photo of an unidentified person can be uploaded online, however video footage cannot.

This reporting system will only allow you to make a report with known suspect information if it is for a:

  • Child Custody Violation
  • Drug Activity Tip
  • Traffic Complaint 
  • Business Shoplifting/Representative with less than a $2,000 loss
