File a Police Report
Welcome to the Online Reporting System for the San Leandro Police Department. If this is an EMERGENCY, please call 911. If this situation requires immediate police attention, please call 510-577-2740 instead of filing an online report.
The online reporting system should only be used to report incidents that do not require immediate police attention. This reporting system is not continuously monitored by police personnel. Using this system will allow you to file a police report at your convenience. You will be able to print a temporary report immediately and you will receive a free copy of the report via email once the report has been reviewed and approved.
