OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Law enforcement is introducing a new way to report non-emergency crimes.

Omaha Police says it’s launched a new online reporting system.

The new system will let people report non-emergency crimes online, rather than by calling. The non-emergency number is still available by calling (402) 444-4877.

According to police, non-emergency crimes include things like shoplifting, animal bites, fraud, graffiti, littering, harassment, missing property or pets, trespassing and traffic complaints.

Since the launch on Wednesday, 13 reports have been submitted, according to Omaha Police.

Non-emergency crimes can be reported through the system with an online form.

Omaha Police says they still encourage people to call 911 for immediate emergencies.
