Residents of Las Cruces can now file four types of Code Enforcement reports online instead of having to call Central Dispatch or speak with an officer. The Las Cruces Police Department reporting system can now accept reports for graffiti, abandoned vehicles, littering or illegal dumping, and loud animals. City residents were already able to file relatively minor property crime reports of incidents that had no suspects or crime scene evidence.
Types of Reports That Can Be Filed
Types of Codes Enforcement reports Las Cruces residents can now file online:
- Abandoned vehicle
- Littering or illegal dumping
- Loud animals
Additional issues that can also be reported to the Las Cruces Police Department are the following:
- Harassing or annoying phone calls (non-emergency)
- Lost property
- Theft from a motor vehicle with no known suspects or evidence
- Theft or larceny of property with no known suspects or evidence
- Vandalism to motor vehicles with no known suspects or viable evidence
- Vandalism to public or private property
The reports must be of incidents that occurred within Las Cruces city limits. Crimes that occurred outside city limits should be reported to law enforcement in their respective jurisdiction. If the incident in question is an emergency, or if there is a known suspect or potential crime scene evidence that can be collected, the reporting party should call 911 or 575-526-0795, the non-emergency phone number to Central Dispatch.
Once a Report is Filed
The system allows users to receive a temporary case number and print a copy of the unofficial report. Information submitted is reviewed by a Las Cruces Codes Enforcement officer or a Las Cruces Police officer for approval. Once approved, the information is entered into Las Cruces Police Department (LCPD) records and an official report is generated. The reporting party will receive an email confirming the report and instructions on how to print a free copy of the report. The officer can also recommend further investigation into the matter.
