The Plymouth Police are committed to providing the highest level of protection and service to all who live in, work in and visit our community. To accomplish this, we need the assistance of our citizens. How can you help? Be informed, be aware and call the police to report suspicious activity.
In this section of the website, we provide tools to help you become more informed and to help you get information and feedback to the police to help us solve crimes.
One of the ways we provide information is through our web crime map. To provide specific information about crime in our community, the police have partnered with BAIR Analytics. The RAIDS (Regional Analysis and Information Data Sharing) Online crime map displays the following eight crimes types on the Plymouth map: homicide; attempted homicide; aggravated robbery; burglary-commercial; burglary-residential; motor vehicle theft; burglary from motor vehicle; and vandalism. To obtain details about a specific crime (i.e. case number, location, date and time), click on the event icon.
The Public Safety Department also posts news releases about major incidents that occur when working with the media and the public on incidents. If you have further questions about a posting, contact Public Information Officer Tammy Ward at 763-509-5163 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If she is not available, you can also call the department’s main number at 763-509-5160 to be directed you to someone who can help you.
If you see a crime in progress or need a police response for any reason, please call 9-1-1 immediately. If you wish to remain anonymous, be sure and tell the dispatcher. When calling, remember to give as much information as possible, including what is happening and where. Also, get as much of a description of the suspects and vehicles involved as possible.
If you have information on a past crime that might help police solve the crime (such as the name of a suspect, a license plate of a suspect's vehicle, the location of a suspect, etc.), you can call the Crime Tip Line at 763-509-5177. (Note: The crime tip line is not for in progress or time sensitive calls. For crimes in progress, driving or parking complaints, or other incidents needing a police response, please call 9-1-1 only.)
If you have information on suspicious behavior that you saw that may be related to terrorist or other criminal activity, but is not occurring now, you may file an online iWATCH report.
The Plymouth Public Safety Department is also a member of the National Crime Stoppers Program. You may also call their tip line number at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or text TIP674 to 294637 (crimes).
Copy of a Police Report
Copies of police reports should be requested in writing. To simplify this procedure, you may print out a copy of the information disclosure request form (PDF). Fill it out and submit it by mail, fax, email or in person. Many reports are available at no charge.
The department attempts to fill requests as soon as possible, however, information on some reports may be private or confidential and must be separated out before copies can be released. As this takes time, it may take up to five days to process requests.
