Anyone who uses a device designed to propel projectiles at a high rate of speed such as a bow and arrow, bb gun, or air-soft gun cannot just shoot them in the city limits.

Why is investigating my criminal complaint taking so long?
While our detectives work very hard on every case they receive, they must prioritize all cases. Additionally, many investigations require the issuance of investigative subpeonas, warrants or records requests, all of which require that sufficient time be granted to respond to the request. Our detectives are committed to providing each case the attention it deserves. If you have questions regarding the status of your case, please do not hesitate to call the office at 435.882.8900 and ask to speak to the detective assigned to the case.
What do I do if I think I am a victim of identity fraud?
Unfortunately most of us will be the victim of identity fraud or financial fraud. It is important to monitor your bank account on a regular basis for suspicious activity, if something doesn’t look right call your financial institution and inquire about it. If the transaction is fraudulent call dispatch and request an officer to take a report. Be wary of email, phone and Internet offers for money or that request your personal information, if it seems too good to be true it probably is. If you receive a suspicious call, email or postal mail call for an officer to respond so that it can be investigated. Finally, if you have been the victim of identity theft or a financial crime maintain all records to assist the detective in their investigation. You can also complete a fraudulent activity report on the Utah Attorney Generals Website at idtheft.utah.gov. This site provides valuable information regarding identity theft and will take you step by step through a fraudulent activity report.
