Can I report a crime to the District Attorney's Office?
All emergencies should be reported by calling “911” immediately. In most other cases, criminal activity should be reported to the police department in which the crime occurred. For example, if the crime occurred in Washington County, it should generally be reported to the police responsible for that jurisdiction – your local police department or the Pennsylvania State Police.
