Media Release in "Documents"
The Patrol Division, in cooperation with community members and organizations, are actively resolving crime concerns and quality of life issues facing our community.
Patrol officers are the first to respond to calls for service where law enforcement assistance is needed. Duties of the officers include preventing violations of statutes and ordinances, traffic enforcement, suppressing disturbances, roadway accident investigation, traffic direction and patrolling residential and business areas.
Reporting a Crime
Please call 9-1-1 if you believe a crime is currently in progress. To report all non-emergency crimes, please call the non-emergency number, 512 528-2800. Please call as quickly as possible when you believe a crime has occurred. Please do not touch or move items, giving the officers the maximum opportunity to find viable fingerprints.
Suspicious Activity - What Should You Call About
Call about suspicious activity while it is occurring. Be clear about why it is suspicious. You can always call about an obvious or possible crime in progress. Always stay in a safe location and in general, do not approach someone you believe is committing a crime. In certain instances, if you approach or announce that you have called the police, it may reduce our chances of identifying any people involved.
What Information do You Need to Provide?
For stolen items, please have the serial #s, model, make, color, value, time last seen, and time discovered missing. Items that do not have a serial number or owner identification number can not be entered into the state and national wide system as being stolen.
For missing people, please have a description ready which includes height, weight, hair/eye color, clothing, when and where last seen, jewelry, tattoos, age, DOB, SSN, and cell phone number. Please have names, addresses and phone numbers of friends available.
For damaged items, please determine as best you can when (time frame) the damage occurred and the value of damage. Again, it is critical that officers see what was damaged prior to any clean-up.
