Welcome to the Hercules Police Department's Online Crime Reporting Website.

In our effort to provide the community with the best possible service, we established this feature to provide 24/7 reporting capability for certain types of police reports. This system not only allows you to document certain crimes and incidents from a computer, at the date and time of your choosing, but enables us to gather valuable intelligence and stolen property data which is often helpful in solving cases and responding to trends in criminal activity. This system is only intended for crimes or incidents that occurred within the City Limits of Hercules. Please follow the instructions provided.
