From hacked bank accounts to fake tax returns, Allen residents now have an easier way to report cases of identity theft. Instead of completing a hand-written form and returning it to police headquarters, victims can now fill out the Identity Theft Witness Statement online at CityofAllen.org/IDTheftForm>.

The form gathers basic contact information and details of the theft or fraud case. Officers must collect this witness statement before completing a police report. Most banks and credit agencies require a police report before issuing corrections or refunds.

Allen Police will take a report if the offense occurred in the City of Allen or the victim is an Allen resident.
