The Plymouth Police Department is 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 Department 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 Department to help us solve crimes.
One of the ways we provide information is through our web crime map. The crime map shows various types of crimes and calls for service that may be of interest to our residents. Follow the simple directions on the map to turn on push pins of various recent incidents. Additional information about the incident is available by hovering on individual push pins. You can obtain dates and case numbers for incidents.
The 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, 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 crime that previously occurred that might help police solve the crime, you can call the Police Department crime tip line at 763-509-5177.
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 Police 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.
