OPP offering online reporting as another way to report crime

ORILLIA, ON, April 13, 2015 /CNW/ - The people of Ontario now have another way to report a minor crime. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding the public about their online reporting system as an alternative to having an officer attend a scene for a minor incident.  Citizen Self Reporting (CSR) has rolled out across the province and the OPP is proud to offer this simple and efficient new system as a means of reporting certain minor incidents and crimes. 

The OPP's Citizen Self Reporting is an easy to use internet reporting tool that can be accessed from a computer or mobile device and sent directly to the OPP anywhere, anytime.

In an effort to enhance our service delivery, this online reporting system will allow the public to report specific crimes such as lost property, stolen license plates, theft from vehicles, driving complaints, and property damage without an officer having to be dispatched to the scene, provided there are no suspects, injuries or the incident is not an emergency.   

The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired. 

To learn more, and to access Citizen Self Reporting online, go to opp.ca or call the OPP toll-free number 1-888-310-1122.
