On March 1, 2013, the Nampa Police Department launched an improved online reporting system. Advancements in technology have enabled us to expand our capabilities in service to the public. The Nampa Police Department will utilize this technology to make it more convenient for the public to submit a crime report. The intention is to enable citizens to file a report when it is suitable for their schedule without having to wait for an officer to respond. It is also our hope that this will free up officers to handle in progress calls, case investigations, and to increase our crime prevention efforts.
This system is intended for the reporting of cold case incidents that are not actively occurring. Any time there is a crime in progress the public should call dispatch at 465-2257 or 911.
The following crimes should be reported using the online reporting system:
- Stolen Property (no suspects or evidence and excluding guns and vehicles)
- Credit/Debit Card Fraud
- Vandalism (under $1000 damage)
- Gas Thefts
- Lost Property
In order to limit wait times for people needing other services and to increase efficiency and response, the following requests for service should be filed by phone or in person, Monday through Friday between the hours of 12:00pm and 7:00pm:
- Parking Problems (not including obstruction of property or handicapped violations)
- VIN Inspections
- Found Property
- Found Bicycles
- Abandoned Vehicles
The report forms can be accessed by going to the Nampa Police website, nampapolice.org, and clicking on “Online Reports & Forms" on our homepage. There are two ways to proceed:
- Fill out the online form and submit it electronically. You will be issued a report number through email within 24 hours.
- Print the form and mail it to:
- -Nampa Police Department
- -820 2nd Street South
- -Nampa ID 83686
Anyone unfamiliar with the definitions of the above listed crimes can refer to the following link for assistance: http://legislature.idaho.gov/idstat/Title18/T18.htm
If the individual needing to file the report for one of the above listed incidents does not have access to a computer, a report can still be filed by contacting 465-2257. A report form will be mailed to your address for you to fill out, and either drop off at the police department, or mail back to us.
For all other non-emergency incident types please contact police dispatch at 465-2257.
In light of the recent active shooter incidents in Oregon and Connecticut, the Nampa Police Department would like to share information from the Department of Homeland Security that may save your life if you ever find yourself inside one of these incidents.
The DHS has created a 6 minute long instructional video that quickly teaches some of the best practices during one of these incidents. We all hope that this type of tragedy never comes to our city, and God willing we will be spared, but it is always best to be prepared.
You can view the instructional video by clicking on this link. God bless and be safe!
Ford Motor Company recently retired the Crown Victoria as a Police Interceptor. The Crown Victoria has been the single most feared car in the mirrors of drivers for over 15 years. Recently Ford unveiled the new Police Interceptor based on the Taurus style chassis.
Nampa Police recently purchased 7 of the new Police Interceptors. The new cars will go online starting August 14th featuring new graphics. The cars, fully equipped, cost approximately $31,000 each. The new cars feature new up grades such as heavy duty electrical, brakes, suspension and cooling. The cars have a new 280+ HP 3.5L V-6 flex fuel engine for fuel efficiency, and all-wheel drive for handling and safety. They have been equipped with multiple safety features such as back up cameras, multiple air bags and side collision warning.
The cars are available for viewing by appointment. For more information or an appointment to view the car contact Sgt. Tim Randall 468-5596. A photo of the new car has also been added to the slideshow on the homepage of our website.
