Victim Resources

If you are a victim of an assault, theft, fraud, criminal mischief, domestic violence, lewdness or any other violent crime, you are not alone. We can help with understanding the criminal justice system by identifying helpful community resources, filing a Protective Order (PO) or Civil Stalking Injunction (CSI) for your protection, filing for assistance from Crime Victim Reparations, etc.
If you have been the victim of a crime, contact Clearfield Police Department at 801-525-2806 or Clearfield City Victim Services Program Coordinator Teresa Vigil Allen at 801-525-2759 or email.

ID Theft or Fraud

Identity theft can be a challenging crime to investigate because of the nature of the crime and the complexity related to the jurisdiction where the crime occurred. The Clearfield Police Department has an investigator who reviews the identity theft reports and determines if the crime meets the elements defined in the Utah Code Annotated as well as the jurisdiction that should investigate the offense.

If you feel you are a victim of financial fraud you must first contact the appropriate financial institution.
