Crime In The County? OPP Reminds About Online Crime Reporting Tool

Essex County OPP is sending out a reminder the public of a resource that is perhaps little known.

The Citizen Self-Reporting system was developed this past July for residents of OPP policed municipalities in Ontario. It is an online incident reporting system for members of the public to report selected incidents via the internet.

These incidents include crimes which are not an emergency including the following:

  • Theft Under $5000
  • Mischief/Damage to Property Under $5000
  • Mischief/Damage to Vehicle Under $5000
  • Theft from Vehicle
  • Lost/Missing Property (including licence plates)

In all cases, only occurrences that do not involve an injury, a suspect or evidence are applicable, but an officer will attend if requested by the complainant.

Police say that this system will eliminate the need to place a phone call to a police dispatcher and to wait for an officer to attend the scene for some incidents.

It will be up to the individual citizens to decide whether to report specific incidents online, to contact the OPP Communications Centre or to attend a local detachment.

To utilize the Citizen Self-Reporting system, visit the OPP website and look for the Citizen Self-Reporting icon. This will take to you to a secure link where you will be given instructions on how to fill out the report.
