AUBURN, Maine — Residents of Auburn, Maine, can now report certain crimes or complaints online.

The Auburn Police Department has launched a Web-based, nonemergency reporting system that will allow residents to file certain incidents over the Internet at their convenience.

The public can file reports at a time that is best for them without having to wait for an officer to respond or call them back. The system allows users to submit the incident then print a copy of the temporary police report for free.

The system is designed for reports such as animal complaints, crime tips, harassment, thefts, vacant house checks and vandalism.
