WCSO LAUNCHES ONLINE REPORTING SYSTEM; RESIDENTS AND VISITORS CAN NOW FILE SPECIFIC REPORTS ONLINE
WALTON COUNTY, FLA— If you are a resident or visitor to Walton County, Florida you can now file certain crimes without ever leaving your home or office.
Walton County Sheriff’s Office has launched Desk Officer Reporting System (DORS), where people can conveniently report a specific set of crimes through a user-friendly online portal from any electronic device.
The following types of reports will be accepted through the new system:
- Animal Complaints
- Harassing Phone Calls
- Fraudulent Use of Credit/Debit Card
- Identify Theft
- Illegal Dumping
- Lost/Missing Property
- Lost/Stolen License Plates
- Mail Theft
- Misdemeanor Thefts
- Narcotic Tips
- Shoplifting (Retail Theft)
- Traffic Complaint
- Supplement Reports
Although the online reporting system CANNOT be used if there are known suspects related to the crime being reported (unless it’s a narcotics tip), DORS aims to help Walton County Sheriff’s Office provide a better service to residents and make filing a crime report easier for victims.
In addition, this service provides a way for residents and visitors to conveniently file reports on their own time and allow deputies to answer high priority calls for service.
The system is available on the Walton County Sheriff’s Office website at https://waltonso.org/online-reporting-system/ and is also available in Spanish at https://waltonso.org/sistema-de-informes-en-linea/.
The online reporting system should not be used in place of an emergency or during an in-progress crime.
