Why should I report crime? When crime is reported to police, it provides a clearer picture of the types and number of crimes occurring in an area. This information can launch future police projects and initiatives. Crime reported online will be treated the same as crime reported in any other way.

Can crimes that occurred six months ago be reported? Yes, we encourage it!

What if I want to speak with a police officer? If an incident does not fall within the reportable incident types or you wish to speak with an officer directly, your local RCMP detachment must be contacted.

Thank you for continuing to report crime to your local police.
*Please note a valid email address and an Internet connection is required to complete an Online Crime Report..
