Central Falls Police Department
On-line reporting procedures
during declared State of Emergency
On March 14, 2020 Mayor James Diossa has declared a State of Emergency for the City of Central Falls. In compliance with this declaration the Central Falls Police Department is making every effort to follow with guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. In adherence to these guidelines, the Central Falls Police Department is limiting all non-emergency services. Recently the Central Falls Police Department created an online reporting portal to better serve the residents of Central Falls. This system provides a convenient alternative to report non-emergency situations that have occurred within the City of Central Falls, RI. The on-line reporting system can be used to report vandalism, identity theft, credit card fraud, lost/missing items, and theft of packages, harassment and other non-emergency incidents. By utilizing this system, you will assist the police department in limiting our contact with the general public to help prevent exposure and transmission of COVID-19. The CDC guidelines recommend social distancing (keeping a 6-foot distance between you and others when possible) as a protective measure to limit the spread of this virus. If you need further information regarding the online reporting system or have general questions, please call 401-727-7411. We request that you please do not respond to the Police Department for non-emergency matters.
If you are reporting an incident to Central Falls Police that involves an emergency requiring immediate police response DIAL 9-1-1.
