Community Reporting Citizen

Welcome to the Fairfax County online reporting system. This system allows police reports to be submitted at any time for incidents that occurred within Fairfax County.

Reports are typically reviewed within 72 hours, not including weekends, major holidays, or unscheduled government closures. Once a report is submitted, submitters need to check their email often, as police personnel may need clarification or additional information to complete the report.
