Clermont Police Department to Launch Online Citizen Reporting System
CLERMONT (Feb. 12, 2021) – The Clermont Police Department is launching a new online reporting platform for Clermont citizens.
“As part of our commitment to providing exceptional service to our Champions, this web-based reporting system will allow the public to file certain incidents, such as identity theft, lost property, fraud and criminal mischief, through the web at their convenience,” Chief Charles Broadway said.
Planned to go live in March, the free, controlled-access program will increase efficiency through advanced technology. Citizens will be able to file a report at any time, from anywhere. Then, they can print a temporary copy of the report upon completion. Police personnel will review the report and, once approved, will send an email to the person who filed it, attaching a copy of the final report.
The report will transfer into the Clermont Police Department records management system and will receive the same type of investigation and statistical analysis as if it was filed in person with a police officer. Citizens also can fill out a report at a kiosk between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Clermont Police Headquarters lobby, 3600 S. U.S. Highway 27.
This new option will allow officers more time to address community needs while keeping pace with the public expectancy to complete services via the internet.
The Clermont Police Department will be using the Desk Officer Reporting System called LexisNexis Coplogic Solutions, which is used by hundreds of agencies around the country to increase efficiency through advanced technology.
