The Citizen Self Service website is available for you to use to report non-emergency incidents.  If you are experiencing or witnessing an emergency, call 911 now.

Please follow through these guidelines to see if it’s an option for you to use.  This is an additional tool.  If you feel more comfortable, you are always welcome to call or visit the Sumner Police.

When to Use This Option

Citizen Self Service is an option for you if you are reporting:
– A crime that has already been committed
– You have no suspects or witnesses
– No one was injured
– A crime happened within the City of Sumner


This is NOT the correct option for you if
– The crime is in progress
– The crime is an emergency
– Someone has been injured
STOP: Call 911 now if any of the above apply

In addition, the self service is not your best option if
– There is a suspect
– There is a witness
– The crime happened outside the City of Sumner.
If these apply, please call the non-emergency number at 253-863-6384.
