Online crime reporting tool expands

Since November 2019, the Prince George Detachment has been accepting crime reports through an online tool, available through our web site at http://princegeorge.rcmp.ca.

Recently, the RCMP have expanded the reportable incidents to include traffic complaints, as well as stolen licence plates and registration decals. Some conditions apply.

A full list of incidences that are reportable online are here:

  • Damage/mischief to property where the value is under $5000;
  • Damage/mischief to a vehicle where the value is under $5000;
  • Hit & run to property or an unoccupied vehicle;
  • Theft of bicycle where the value is under $5000;
  • Theft of other property where the value is under $5000;
  • Theft from a vehicle where the value is under $5000;
  • General driving behaviour reports that are not in progress;
  • Lost property including licence plates or validation decals on licence plates.

In order to make a report online, the following conditions MUST be met:

  • The member of the public making the online report MUST use your real name and have a valid e-mail address;
  • There MUST NOT be any witnesses or suspects (this restriction does not apply to driving complaints);
  • Follow-up by a police officer MUST NOT be required;
  • Reports MUST NOT involve personal identification (passports, drivers licences, etc) or firearms;
  • The user MUST agree to the terms and conditions of use.

In addition to providing a more convenient way for residents to make a report of less serious crimes, this tool allows call takers and frontline personnel to focus on higher priority calls, which will improve overall safety and response times in the city. Not all crime are reportable through this tool, including crimes against persons.
