FCPS launches 25x25 initiative
- Public Information Office, Fort Collins Police Services, 970-818-8950, firstname.lastname@example.org
On June 1, Fort Collins Police Services announced the launch of its 25x25 program. This initiative sets FCPS on a course to take 25% of all police reports online by the year 2025.
In 2021, FCPS received 2,280 reports (or 12%) through its web portal, which amounts to a savings of roughly 570 officer hours. To reach “25x25,” FCPS has enhanced the agency’s online system where community members may report incidents such as vehicle break-ins, theft, vandalism, and other cold crimes that occur within the city limits of Fort Collins.
All reports that are submitted online report get reviewed by FCPS. When the report is approved, the community member will receive a confirmation email. If any updates become available in the case, an officer will reach out to the submitter.
People who have questions or prefer to speak with an officer can still call the non-emergency number at 970-419-FCPD. This enhanced online system serves as a convenient option for community members, reduces wait time when reporting a crime, and uses police resources efficiently.
“When we say ‘safety and service for all,’ that means thinking beyond traditional methods and creating more accessible options for our community members to request police assistance,” said Justin Allar, Director of the Information Services Division. “Some people don’t have time to wait for an in-person response, or they simply don’t want to interact with a police officer. Our online reporting system gives them the power to make the report and move on with their day.”
