File a Police Report Online

According to yesterday's Patriot Ledger, Weymouth has joined three other Massachusetts towns-- Fall River, Natick and Peabody-- in allowing citizens to file police reports online. "Capt. Joseph Comperchio, the department’s executive officer, said the new system will free up officers’ time to focus on more serious crimes instead of having to write reports on traffic complaints, lost property and other cases in which the perpetrator is not known....Comperchio said it’s not intended to be used to report crimes with a known suspect or in emergencies, and officers will still respond whenever a caller requests one." Here are links to the four towns' reporting systems:
If you know of other towns with online reporting systems, please let us know!
