Police Reports

as of 7/2/14, still working on this document

In Columbus Ohio, there are two recommended sources for getting public police reports online. The only reports you will find are when a victim files an official police report. When you call in suspicious activity, the call is logged in the Columbus Police database however there will not be a report that shows up in the public portals. This is why we suggest that a victim file an official police report.


The Columbus Police try to upload victim reported incidents within about 8 hours. This is not a hard fast time frame, but seems to mostly follow true.

    Is there a list of Landlords that have committed crime against tenants?
    If so, where do I go to find out and not to rent from them.
    I’m a current tenant of Mr. [name redacted] and have had to obtain a civil stalking protection order against him that has been arrested 4-5 times for violating it. I’m not the only female tenants that this has happened to.

      One option is to go to http://www.fcmcclerk.com/case/rs/search.php and put the name of the person or company in question to see what cases they may have been a party to, especially look for a case with CR in them for criminal case

      Another option if you are an OSU student, here’s an article about the Housing Excellence program: http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2013/11/11/ohio-state-landlords.html

      and here’s a link to it: http://offcampus.osu.edu/off-campus-living/off-campus-housing-excellence-program/

      Be safe and it is your very right to research who your potential landlord will be. I hope this helps.
