Ottawa Police Offer Online Reporting Option

Ottawa Police is providing citizens with a new way of reporting certain crimes through an online reporting system for very specific types of crimes:
*       Lost Vehicle License Plates
*       Theft (Under $5000)
*       Lost Property (Under $5000)
*       Mischief/Damage to Property (Under $5000)
*       Theft from Vehicle (Under $5000)
*       Traffic Complaints

Online reporting is not meant to replace other forms of reporting crime. If you are not comfortable reporting an incident online, you can still go to a police station or phone the Ottawa Police Call Centre at 613-236-1222
, ext. 7300.

Once you submit the online report, you will receive a temporary reference number. Approximately 24 hours later, you will be contacted with further information.

You should not file an report online if...
*       Threat or violence was used during the incident.
*       Evidence was left on the scene (bottle, bottle neck, blood, tools, or clothes).
*       Anyone saw the suspect as the crime was being committed.
*       The incident you are reporting did not happen in Ottawa.
*       You are NOT a resident of Canada.
*       You are reporting on behalf of a business.
*       If this is related to any kind of vandalism or graffiti that could be described as hate or gang motivated.
