- Crime Prevention
The South Salt Lake Police Department is devoted to protecting the safety and welfare of all our residents, and one of the most effective ways to accomplish this is through proactive crime prevention measures. This page is designed to help residents identify and take steps to prevent some of the most widespread crimes in our community.
The best way to combat graffiti is to quickly report and remove it from walls or surfaces. When you see graffiti in your neighborhood, report it to police dispatch at 801-840-4000.
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your name, address, social security number (SSN), bank or credit card account number or other identifying information without your knowledge to open accounts, commit fraud or other illegal activities.

Registering your bike with the police can help prevent bike theft throughout our community. If your bike is ever stolen, all of the information the department needs to list it as stolen, as well as to identify it - and contact you if it is recovered - will be immediately available to officers. Learn more and get your bike registered.
Where to Report Stolen Packages

Emergencies: Always dial 911.

A speed trailer is an apparatus placed on the side of the road that will show the posted speed limit along with the speed of a vehicle passing by it. Speed trailers are often very effective in combating speeding problems in a given area. If you would like to request a speed trailer be placed in your neighborhood, call 801-412-3674 and leave a message. Someone from the Traffic Division will contact you to make arrangements.

There are established Neighborhood Watch groups for every area of the city, and they meet monthly. Contact Officer Chad Keller in the Community Resources Division at 801-412-3654. He will give you information on where your local Neighborhood Watch group meets and when the next meeting is scheduled.
