Now, this is a brilliant idea. Brilliant! Residents of Grapevine can now use a website to report crimes that are not emergencies and don’t require immediate police presence. This is a great way to stretch our city’s resources and to let residents take responsibility for sharing needed details of these incidents.
Some examples of crimes that are to be reported using this process are lost property, animal complaints, vending machine robbery or vandalism, harassing phone calls, and some other things as well.
I hope that I rarely or never have need to report a crime, but we all live in the real world here and I’m sure it is inevitable. Assuming an emergency is not involved, I will be taking advantage of this and thank the city of Grapevine for being innovative with technology.
