File Your Non-Emergency Issues Online with the Prince William County Police

Prince William County, VA has an outstanding police force.  And they have just rolled out a new way to report non-emergency issues online at http://www.pwcgov.org/police.  I’ve always called the non-emergency dispatch number of 703-792-6500.  In fact, I have the number stored in my cell phone for those occasions when I see a stranded vehicle, a dog on the loose or other incident that doesn’t merit an 9-1-1 call.

The online reporting is meant for incidents that meet the following criteria:

  • It’s not an emergency
  • It occurred in Prince William County, VA NOT in City of Manassas or Manassas Park
  • You do not know who committed the crime or perpetrated the incident
  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You have an email address where you can receive information

Examples of crimes you can report online include:

  • Harassing calls, texts or emails
  • Hit & Run
  • Theft
  • Lost Property
  • Vandalism
  • Supplement to a Report Already Filed

The Prince William County Police encourage their residents to use this new tool responsibly.  They are reminding citizens that filing a false police report is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by jail time of not more than 12 months, or a fine of not more than $2,500.
