We Depend on our submitting detectives and officers to keep us updated when they make an identification or close a case.

New cases are added at least once a day, updates and captured are updated several times a week, depending on work load in our primary jobs, and almost always on Thursday mornings.

Detectives should notify their call takers when making a submission, as the media does use this site as a source of information and they may call for additional information or wishing to feature a case.

We do not currently mark identifications for violent crimes, but we have a private note area for keeping track of new information for those cases. We will flag the identification of nonviolent criminals.

The IP address of submitting parties is recorded, and a person making a false entry could be construed to be making a false police report .

Please leave us feedback if you have difficulty making a submission, or call Lt. Leo Hoban at (781)320-1000. We continue to try and streamline the submission process and to make it easier for our participating detectives.

Submitting agencies agree to notify the web site when a suspect is identified and when a suspect is arrested. 

Case submission process:

• Scan in the photographs or other available identification information. JPG format is encouraged, as it is the most efficient way of sending photographs.

• Fill out the information form below with details of the crime.

• Attach the photo files using the file browse button.

• Submit the case using the submit button.

• We do not post composite/identikit sketches, but do post artist renditions.

• Online case submission forwards case information directly to the webmasters who maintain the site. The web site is updated each weekday. For an urgent posting, please follow up the submission with a telephone call to the Westwood Police (781)320-1000, asking the desk to notify Lieutenant Hoban or Dispatcher Kamp about the urgent case.
