Issues

•  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
 
•  Back to School and Dangerous Trees: the start of school is fast approaching and the City of Casper wants everyone to be safe.  Please review these guidelines to ensure compliance with City ordinances when removing or trimming any overgrown tree limbs, shrubs, bushes, or other vegetation that obstructs visibility for traffic, alley access for vehicles, and the walkability for pedestrians on sidewalks and crosswalks.
