Online Reporting

Online Reporting System


The Banning Police Department’s online reporting system allows citizens to submit an online report that occurs in the City of Banning jurisdictions. A valid email address is required to submit an online report.

We strongly encourage you to be thorough and accurate when submitting the report. In addition, we must remind the citizen that submitting a false report is a crime.

Make sure you don’t need an officer to take the report
The City of Banning Police Department does NOT take online reports pertaining to assault; robbery; sexual assault; violent crime; domestic violence; terrorist threats; theft from person; residential burglary; stolen cars; car accidents; arson; biased crimes; parental kidnapping and burglary of business, apartment, or rental storage. These incidents should be reported by calling 951-922-3170 Option 3 (non-emergency).

Make sure you can report your incident online

Please confirm the following to find out if online citizen report filing is right for you:

  • This is not an Emergency
  • This incident occurred within the Banning Police Department City limits?
  • There are No Known suspects?
  • This did not occur on a State Freeway?

Did you answer YES to all of the above questions? Then you are ready to file your report online.

If you answered NO to any of the above questions, please call the Banning Police Department at 951-922-3170 Option 3 (non-emergency).

Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report. If you answered no to any of the questions please look at our Online Citizen Police Report Frequently Asked Questions section.

Make sure you have all the information you need to submit your report
The program will ask about:


Who is reporting? (victim identity)


When and where it happened and your detailed description of the event. You can also attach pictures/images to the report in this section?


Who are the involved parties? (optional) 



What vehicle was involved in the incident? (optional)


What was lost, stolen, forged or damaged?

Once your report is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation with a "temporary tracking number". While your report is in the review process, we use the "temporary tracking number" to find the report and track its progress. We do not retain these "temporary numbers" and they do not replace an actual "permanent report number". When your report is approved, you will be notified via email with an official copy of the report and the case number assigned. You may also receive an email requesting additional information.

Just need to add missing property information to your active report?

  1. you will need to provide your original report number (i.e. 2014-xxxx)
  2. if possible, the make and/or model and serial numbers of any equipment
