Online Incident Reporting Form

The purpose of this is to allow the citizens of the City of Athens, Ohio, visitors or any victim of a crime committed within the city limits, to file certain police reports online.

If the incident you wish to report is an emergency, a crime-in-progress, or involves any type of physical injury, please do not submit an online report, call 911 immediately.

The theft of a firearm or of prescription medication, narcotic or otherwise CANNOT be reported online.  For any incident that requires a police officer to respond call 911 or the non-emergency number 740-592-3313.

Before you proceed, you should be aware that it is a crime to make a false police report and all instances of such will be prosecuted.  This online reporting system is only to be used to report a limited set of criminal incidents with very specific criteria, listed below.
