A police report is taken when there is evidence or suspicion of a crime or an incident that warrants documentation.
When a police officer is summoned to your residence, business, or location, a determination will be made at that time if a report is to be filed. If a report is taken, you will be given a case number. This number will be your referral number if you need to request a copy of the report for insurance purposes or if you need to check the progress of the investigation on your case.
You may also come into the Front Desk of the Sparks Police Department to file your report. The Front Desk is staffed by Police Assistants with main hours of operation 8am to 6pm Monday thru Friday and 8am to 4pm Saturday, Closed on Holidays. If you have an urgent issue and it is after the normal Front Desk hours, an officer will be made available to you.
Phone reports are also available through our Front Desk Police Assistants during the hours listed above.
