How to Report a Crime
If this is an emergency, dial 911!
Please contact the Port Angeles Police Department to file an incident report or click on the next tab, "File a Report Online", to file a report online. An investigator will contact you only when, and if, new information develops, your property has been recovered, or an arrest has been made.
To report an anonymous tip, please fill out our anonymous online tip form. Note: No government agency will have access to your email address. Your email address will not be published, displayed on this site, or provided to any person. It will only be used to provide an "anonymous message drop", in the event additional information is needed. Again, always call 911 for emergencies.
