Supplemental Report (Follow-Up Report)

When a report has already been filed, but you need to update the list of property.

Theft

When property is taken without your permission. Property known to be stolen should be reported, but lost property is not a theft.
  • If the item was stolen from your house, hotel room, garage or shed, as a result of the suspect being there with your permission, (e.g., babysitter, house guest), this is theft and you can report it online.
  • If the item was stolen from your house, hotel room, garage or shed, as a result of the suspect being there unlawfully, without your permission, or forcing their way in, you can't report this online. Contact police as this is a Break and Enter report.

Theft From Vehicle

When property is stolen from your personal or business vehicle.

Note: If you had property stolen from more than one vehicle, then you must enter a separate report for each vehicle.
