Today, the Surrey RCMP is launching a new online crime reporting tool to assist residents in reporting select non-emergency crimes. This is part of a pilot project for the BC RCMP’s new Online Crime Reporting tool that includes detachments in Kelowna, Richmond, Ridge Meadows, and Surrey.

Online Crime Reporting provides an alternate way for citizens to report less serious crimes at www.surreyrcmp.ca/report and through the Surrey RCMP mobile app.

Citizens with a valid email address can report less serious crimes that occurred in Surrey where there is no suspect or witness and follow up by a police officer is not required. Specifically, residents will be able to report the following crimes online:

In addition to providing a more convenient way for residents to make a report, this new tool will also allow call takers and frontline personnel to focus on higher priority calls, which will improve overall safety and response times in the city.

Crime reports from the public are an essential part of determining how our policing resources are deployed in the city, says Superintendent Ed Boettcher, Surrey RCMP Operations Officer. This additional reporting tool will enhance our service delivery to residents of Surrey by making it more convenient to report less serious crimes, while allowing police to focus on emergency calls for service.
