Winnipeg police have expanded the type of reports citizens can make online.
As of this month, four new categories are available for online reporting:
- Vehicle hit and runs (when unoccupied)
- Damage/mischief to a vehicle (other than during a collision)
- Theft from a vehicle
- Fraud involving counterfeit bills
The online system is available 24/7 and each report receives the same attention as a report taken in-person or on the phone.
Upon completing an online report, citizens are given a report number and their report is sent to the appropriate investigative unit for follow-up.
In 2022, the Winnipeg Police Service received more than 48,000 online police reports.
