Everett Police Say Don’t Drop A Dime, Report Your Crime Online…

crime report

You can now use your keyboard instead of your phone to report crime in Everett, WA

Okay the following joint press release doesn’t exactly say that, but Everett Police and Snohomish County Sheriff are asking folks who basically just need a police report for insurance purposes to file online instead of calling 9-1-1…

Type and click. That’s how easy it is to submit an online crime report thanks to a new tool being used by two of Snohomish County’s largest law enforcement agencies. In September, the Everett Police Department and Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the county’s primary emergency dispatch agency, SNOPAC, launched the new online crime reporting site www.mycrimereport.us.

“It’s important to report all crimes, even minor ones, but we know it can sometimes be time-consuming,” said Sheriff Ty Trenary.  “The online tool is a faster way for residents to submit their report and get on with their lives.”

The online crime reporting tool — which can be accessed via mobile device — may be especially useful for victims who need a crime report number for insurance purposes but don’t want to wait for an officer or deputy to respond.  The online tool generates a crime report number and sends that number to the victim’s e-mail, typically within 72 business hours. All reports are reviewed by law enforcement personnel.

Another benefit to the online crime report is that it reduces the need for law enforcement to follow-up on every call in person, meaning officers and deputies can spend more time on proactive patrol.  However, crime victims can still request an in-person follow-up, and anyone with questions about a crime and how to report it should still call 911.

“The online reporting program will free up officers and deputies to do patrol work, rather than paperwork,” said Everett Police Chief Dan Templeman.

While the online tool is valuable for reporting minor crimes, there are some reports that must be made by calling 911. Types of crimes that cannot be reported online include felonies, crimes where the suspect is known, where the address of the incident is unknown and/or where the value of something stolen or damaged exceeds $5,000. The minimum requirements for filing a report online are that the reporting party has an e-mail address and that they know the location where the incident occurred.

Examples of crimes recently reported online include:

  • Vandalism – Graffiti on the side of a homeowner’s garage
  • Theft – A stolen cell phone
  • Theft – A bike stolen from school
  • Vehicle damage, prowl – A “smash and grab” of a GPS device from a vehicle

Both agencies stress if you aren’t sure, go ahead and call 9-1-1.

It was a busy Thursday evening for police in Everett, WA.

MyEverettNews.com Twitter followers tell us it was quite a scene in north Everett as police surrounded a house in the 1000 block of Maple after a report of an assault with a weapon. Everett Police Spokesman Aaron Snell provides the details in this press release…

At about 5:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block of Maple St. on the report of an assault with a weapon. Arriving officers contacted the victim homeowner who stated that a male came over to his house to collect on a debt. The victim and the male got into an altercation during which the male pulled out a knife and also took a handgun from the victim. The victim was able to get out of the house and called 911.

The victim believed the male was still inside his house and officers contained the area. Commands were given for the male to come out and a robot was used to look inside the home. While Everett officers worked to contact the male, Marysville Police Department found the male at a house in Marysville. He was detained and is expected to be booked into the Snohomish County jail.

The Everett Police Department is stepping up recruitment efforts to hire 15 new officers next year. According to Everett Police Sgt. Ryan Dalberg these aren’t new positions. “We’re just trying to fill our regular allotment of officers, said Dalberg. “These openings are due to retirements and our normal attrition.” Dalberg went on to say that the two biggest challenges the department faces in getting qualified candidates are the ability to pass the physical fitness test and the background check. “We have extremely high standards for who can become an Everett Police officer,” said Dalberg. “It’s one thing to think you can do 30 push-ups, etc. It’s another to actually do it during the pressure of testing.” In order to meet the goal of hiring 15 officers in 2015 Everett Police plan to attend more hiring events, add an additional test next year, assign additional background investigators, continue to work with Naval Station Everett on career transition for Naval personnel and advertise to a wider audience.
