To help police deal with the increasing volume of calls, the OPP is reminding residents about their online reporting system as an alternative to having an officer attend a scene for a minor incident.

Citizen Self Reporting is an internet reporting tool that can be accessed from a computer or mobile device, and your report will be sent directly to the OPP.

Crimes that you can report through the online tool include:

- theft under $5,000
- mischief/damage to property under $5,000
- mischief/damage to vehicle under $5,000
- theft from vehicle - lost/missing property under $5,000
- stolen licence plates
- driving complaints

The tool can be found here.
