Online Crime Reporting
Welcome to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office’s Online Reporting System. If this is an emergency or a crime in progress, please do not file a report here- call 911 immediately. This system is not monitored 24/7. For reporting in-progress, but non-emergency calls, please call 530-886-5375.

Important - Please Read This First
Online reporting is only for the reporting of low-level property crime reports that happened within unincorporated areas of Placer County, the Town of Loomis, or the City of Colfax. This system is for use when there are no investigative leads, and the incident is primarily being reported for the information of the Sheriff’s Office and/or insurance purposes.
If you know or have an idea who committed the crime; or if you or someone else saw the person who committed the crime; or if you or someone else saw their vehicle or obtained a license plate number; or if there is video surveillance of the suspect available; please do not use this system, as it will add to unnecessary delays in a report being generated. Instead, call our dispatch at 530-886-5375.
