Can I make a police report over the phone?

Maybe. If you are reporting something non-criminal, such as a hazardous road condition, then you can call the main number and make a report to any officer or dispatcher who is available to answer your call. If the complaint is criminal in nature, then officers may need to verify identification, seize evidence and obtain statements and therefore will need to meet with you in person.
