Division of Criminal Investigation

Report a Crime


Emergencies and crimes in progress should be reported by dialing 911.  Other crimes, especially those requiring immediate action, should be reported to local law enforcement.  For information pertaining to law enforcement agencies in your area, the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Directory is provided.

Persons who wish to report a crime directly to the Wisconsin Department of Justice may do so by calling the Division of Criminal Investigation at 608-266-1671. Please be aware that the Department of Justice cannot respond directly to situations requiring immediate action. In many instances, a report to us will be referred to a local agency for follow-up.
