Did you know you can file a police report online? The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) serves Los Angeles County, California, an area totaling approximately 4,084 square miles, with a total county population of almost 10 million people (2010 U.S. Census). The LASD is the largest Sheriff's Department in the world. With more than 18,000 employees and a geographic area of responsibility equivalent to 30 major cities, the LASD is large and diverse. Over one thousand dispatched police cars handling approximately eight thousand calls for service and public contacts, and hundreds of 911 calls daily is a formidable task which we dutifully accept. At busy times, phone lines become congested and we aren’t able to provide the service expected by the people of Los Angeles County. To help mitigate these challenges, the Sheriff’s Online Report Tracking System (S.O.R.T.S.) was created. The LASD provides general law enforcement services to 42 contract cities, 141 unincorporated communities, 216 facilities, hospitals and clinics located throughout the County, 9 community colleges, the Metropolitan Transit Authority, and 38 Superior Courts. This system allows you to file a specific type of crime or incident report through this website. Once your report is reviewed and accepted, you will receive a free copy of the approved report emailed to you for your records. IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY OR A CRIME IS IN PROGRESS, DO NOT USE THIS SYSTEM. CALL 9-1-1 You can report the following incidents: • Lost or stolen cell phones valued $950 or less • Lost or stolen property valued $950 or less • Vandalism, excluding graffiti, where damage is valued under $400 • Theft from an unlocked vehicle valued $950 or less • Theft from an open or unsecured area valued $950 or less • Supplemental Loss Form (Must already have a LASD report number) All cases filed within this system will be reviewed. Department policy will dictate the level of investigation needed for the incident you report to us. A deputy sheriff may need to follow-up by email, telephone, or in person, if the incident requires further investigation.
