Report a Crime or Traffic Complaint Online
If this is an Emergency, do not file a report online, but instead call 911 immediately.
There are three types of complaints that can be reported online; Traffic complaint, Crime above $5,000 or Crime below $5,000 in which a suspect is unlikely to be identified.
Online reporting allows you to take action when convenient for you and is an efficient and effective use of police resources.
You are required to have a valid email address when completing a report.
When you report a crime online:
- Your file will be reviewed and given a temporary file number
- If the file is approved, you will be given a new file number
- Your incident will go into our reporting protocols, helping us identify patterns and shift resources to protect your neighbourhood appropriately.
