Self report at opp.ca for specific non-emergencies
(BRUCE PENINSULA, ON) – The Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is encouraging the public to take advantage of citizen self reporting at opp. ca. It is a quick and easy way to report your concerns to police.
Recently the OPP has revealed an online reporting system that will enable the public to report specific occurrences from a computer. Citizen self reporting offers the public another way to report select incidents which are not an emergency, by completing a report online at their convenience. The site has simple step-by-step instructions.
The OPP is one of several Ontario police services which have adopted an internet-based crime reporting system where people can report certain crimes such as:
• theft under $5000
• mischief/damage to property under $5000
• mischief/damage to vehicle under $5000
• theft from vehicle
• lost/missing property under $5000
• stolen licence plates or validation stickers
• driving complaints Do not use this system in an emergency – call 911.
Remember that only occurrences that do not involve an injury, a suspect or evidence are applicable.
If you prefer, you may still contact the OPP by phone to report a crime to have an officer attend.
It is expected that citizen self reporting will be beneficial to both the public and the police. It will provide a convenient alternative to the citizens of Ontario, while allowing frontline officers to focus their efforts on other enforcement and crime prevention strategies within our communities.
By providing people with another option for reporting crimes, the OPP is hopeful that more incidents will be reported, resulting in the collection of information to develop future crime prevention initiatives.
