You can now report crimes to Mission RCMP online

New program designed to make reporting crime easier for people

Mission RCMP is making it easier to report a crime thanks to a new online program.

As of now the community of Mission will be able to make online reports of crimes that fall within certain criteria, particularly crimes where no suspects or witnesses were/are present and no police presence is required.

Examples of incidents which can be reported through the new online tool include:

• Damage/mischief under $5,000 to property

• Damage/mischief under $5,000 to vehicle

• Hit and run to unoccupied vehicle or property

• Theft of bicycle under $5,000

• Theft under $5,000

• Theft under $5,000 from vehicle

• Lost property

“It’s about service. We want to make reporting crime easier for the people in Mission. In a society where the majority of people live a portion of their lives online, you should be able to communicate with your local police department to make a report,” explained Cpl. Nathan Berze of the Mission RCMP.

The online reporting system is new to Mission, but not to the BC RCMP.

Several detachments had tested the tool a few years ago and after some improvements were made, provincial RCMP decided to implement it in several pilot communities.

In June, four pilot RCMP detachments – Surrey, Ridge Meadows, Kelowna and Richmond – began testing the Online Crime Reporting Tool

Residents and business owners from these pilot communities, with a valid email address, were able to use the online crime reporting tool to report a crime that met the above criteria.

The system is available in both English and French, and is accessible from the Mission RCMP detachment website under Report a Crime (ocre-sielc.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/mission).
