If you are a resident of Gold Canyon, (or other locations in Pinal County Sheriff’s Office jurisdiction), a feature has been added to the County website that will make it easier for residents to report minor crimes. Pinal County citizens can now file minor crime reports online at the Pinal County Sherriff’s Office Web site — (look for a menu item on the left-hand main navigation menu.)
Minor crimes that can be reported on line include: thefts where the value of the items taken is less than $1,000; all stolen bicycles despite the bicycle value; shoplifted items with a value less than $250; criminal damage with a value of less than $1,000; and lost property with a value more than $1,000 (there is no report for values less than $1,000).
A series of easily-navigable questions lead the reporting party through the minor crime reporting process and the report is submitted via computer directly to the PCSO Records Unit — no deputy required.
However, if citizens are reporting a crime in progress, or choose to have a deputy respond to take a minor crime report, they can call the PCSO dispatch center at 520-866-5111.
The PCSO Online Minor Crime Report is one of many features available on the PCSO Web site, including found property and inmate searches, records request and graffiti removal forms and the latest news and information about the different units. The Sherriff’s office has stated that their goal is to have a user-friendly site that is increasingly helpful to citizens.
