Report a Crime

Most financial crimes aren’t emergencies. If your situation does demand immediate attention, please call 911 and ask that an officer respond. Otherwise, please call 210-207-7451 to make an appointment to discuss your case.

During your appointment, a detective will:

  • Review your records
  • Advise you about next steps
  • Advise you on any documentation needed to prove a criminal case
