Redding Police say that every crime should be reported, regardless of whether there’s a chance of it being solved. It’s easy to do from any Internet connected device at reddingpolice.org and can be completed in minutes. That way a case number can be quickly acquired for insurance purposes. Even if it’s only a petty theft, it’s very possible that the stolen goods will turn up eventually when the thief gets busted for something else. Another reason is so that accurate crime rate statistics can be maintained.
