Welcome to the Merced Police Department Citizen Police Reporting System. If this is an emergency please call 911. Using this online reporting system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a temporary copy of the report for free. Please confirm the following to find out if online report filing is right for you:

  • Is this an emergency?
  • Did this incident occur outside of Merced city limits?

If you answered no to all of the above questions, you are ready to file your report online. Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report. If you answered yes to any of the questions please look at our Citizen Police Reporting Frequently Asked Questions section.


Upon completion of this report process you will:
