Issues

•  ELERV Initiative: the Casper Police Department has been selected to serve as a demonstration site for the Service, Support & Justice: A Strategy to Enhance Law Enforcement Response to Victims (ELERV) Initiative.  Through this grant, Casper PD is seeking to improve the overall response to victims of crime, including a strong focus on reaching and serving underserved and/or unserved victims in our community.  This press release, sent out by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), contains more information.

•  Online Police Reporting: as of August 1, 2016, citizens are now able to report most non-emergency incidents and crimes online without having to wait for an officer to respond in person.  Additionally, the Casper Police Department is no longer responding to minor (non-injury) automobile accidents that occur on non-government maintained roadways or parking lots.  However, online reporting procedures still offer citizens the ability to document such accidents for insurance purposes.  The Casper Police Department continues to respond to all active, in-progress incidents, emergencies, or other incidents requiring direct law enforcement intervention.  To file an online police report click the “File a Police Report” link at the top of the City of Casper’s website.  See the press release here
