Welcome to the Cathedral City Police Department Citizens Online Police Reporting System. If this is an Emergency please call 911. Using this online citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free. Please answer the following questions to determine if filing an online citizen police report is right for you:
