Have you witnessed a driver making a minor traffic violation or another infraction, like littering, and would like them to be notified by the police? The Salem Police Department has a Citizen Reporting Form that can be filled out and submitted to the department by the witness. The registered owner of the vehicle will be notified by letter that this type of infraction has been witnessed. The letter will include the possible fine that the driver would have received had the violation been witnessed by a patrol officer.
