DRPS has expanded the "Online Services" area of drps.ca to provide an efficient process for reporting minor crimes and community concerns.
Online Services launched in June 2015, giving residents the opportunity to conveniently report minor crimes online. We have recently added two new categories:
Identity Theft/Fraud - Residents can utilize this area if they feel personal information has been used to open a bank account or obtain credit, or if personal identification has been taken without permission.
Community Concerns - This area can be used to report ongoing negative behaviour or activity in your community. Reportable incidents include traffic violations, loitering, illicit drug use, alcohol consumption in public, or any ongoing activity that affects community enjoyment.
In 2016 online reporting generated 1076 reports and residents are encouraged to utilize this convenient option for reporting crime.
For citizens wanting to report minor, non-emergent property crimes visit our website at www.drps.ca, click "Online Services," choose the appropriate categories from the drop down boxes and report your minor property crime, including photos.
Non-emergent property crime means there is no immediate threat your safety, no suspect on scene and no potential for injury. You can still call police at 1-888-579-1520 or visit the nearest police station to report a non-emergent crime if that is your preference.
