The Police Department does not tow vehicles off private property unless the car is stolen or is evidence of a crime. Any towing company will tow a vehicle off your property at the owner's expense. If you feel the vehicle may be stolen or appears suspicious contact the Police Department.
There is no specific waiting period for reporting a missing or overdue person. It is difficult to recommend a time period because each case is different. One suggestion would be to call different locations the person might be, including friends, family, employer, and common places where they spend time. Find out when the person was last seen and by whom. Ask if the missing person said they might stop off somewhere on the way home. Find out if they mentioned having car trouble. Once these efforts have been exhausted, please contact the Police Department.
Lost Cell Phones
The Shawnee Police Department does not complete police reports for lost cellular phones. Lost phones are not a criminal matter, and there is no investigation to be initiated by department personnel. These matters need to be addressed with the owner's cell phone carrier.
If you obtain information that indicates the phone may have been stolen, contact the Police Department immediately and a report will be taken. A police investigation may be initiated for stolen phones, and you will be provided the case number of your report. For lost phones, the pdf form below should be provided to your cell phone carrier as confirmation of contact with your local police department.
Stolen License Plates
The Police Department will not complete police reports and provide case numbers involving misplaced or lost license plates and registration decals when there is no crime involved. These incidents do not involve any criminal activity and there is no investigation that can be undertaken.
If a citizen responds to the Police Department and reports the lost or misplaced item, the Police Department will provide a letter (pdf form below) for the Department of Motor Vehicles as verification. When there is a verified crime, such as a theft, the Police Department will complete the necessary reports and investigate the incident. A case number will be provided to the victims of these reported crimes.
