Police Reporting System

Welcome to the West Valley City Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System. If this is an Emergency please dial 911. If you would like to call the tip line, please answer the same questions first, and then call Tip-A-Cop at 801-963-3459. Using this online citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free. Please confirm the following to find out if online citizen police report filing or Tip-A-Cop is right for you:

  • This is not an Emergency?
  • This incident occurred within the city limits of West Valley City?
  • This did not occur on a State Freeway?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, you are ready to file your report online. Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report. If you answered no to any of the questions please look at our Online Citizen Police Report Frequently Asked Questions section.

What is needed for the report?
