The Rome Police Department has announced that as of this Thursday, it will implement Non-Emergency Online Incident Reporting.
According to a statement that was posted on the RPD’s Facebook page late Tuesday afternoon, “We recognize that COVID-19 has changed our lives in many ways. We want everyone to stay safe during these times and still have access to file non-emergency reports without the need for person-to-person contact with a police officer.”
Those interested in using the self-reporting option should keep the following in mind:
- The incident should be non-emergency.
- The incident must have occurred inside the city limits of Rome, GA.
- There are no injuries involved.
- No physical evidence needs to be collected.
- The incident being reported is for lost property, theft by taking $1,500 or less and damage to property less than $500.

This reporting option is not intended for persons needing a report where the suspect is present or if there is a need for immediate police or medical help; those people should call 911.
