Report a crime

Our online Citizen Self Reporting tool allows you to report minor occurrences such as theft, mischief to property, lost property and driving complaints that occurred in areas policed by the OPP.

Filing a police report online

This system allows you to submit a report from your computer or mobile device without going to an OPP detachment. All submissions will be sent directly to the OPP and reviewed by an officer. You may be contacted to provide more information. You must have a valid e-mail address in order to submit a report.

To file a report online, please follow the simple steps below:

STEP 1: Make sure your occurrence can be reported online

Use the information below to see if you can use this system. If your occurrence qualifies for online reporting, proceed to the next step. If your occurrence does not qualify for online reporting, it cannot be accepted by the officer managing online reporting. These occurrences require contact with a local OPP officer for investigation. Please call the OPP toll-free at 1-888-310-1122 or visit your local detachment to file a report. Links to external websites including those with video, digital images or documents that are not supported by this application cannot be managed through this online reporting service. Please include a narrative description of the occurrence if you will be filing an online report.


Use this system to report:

  • Lost/missing property under $5,000
  • Stolen license plates or validation stickers
  • Theft from a vehicle under $5,000
  • Mischief to a vehicle under $5,000
  • Mischief (damage to property other than a vehicle) under $5,000
  • Theft under $5,000
  • Driving Complaints

DO NOT use this system:

  • If the occurrence is an emergency
  • If the occurrence happened outside of OPP jurisdiction
  • If there are any identifiable suspects
  • If anyone was injured
  • If the occurrence involves a weapon
  • If the occurrence involves any damage to a motor vehicle due to an actual or apparent collision, including fail to remain collisions
  • If the occurrence involves a break and enter to a place (e.g. unlawful entry and theft from a house, a building or a structure)
  • If the total value of the property or damage exceeds $5,000
  • If the occurrence involves drugs or gambling
    (including lottery tickets)
  • If the occurrence involves a passport
  • If the occurrence involves a lost or missing licence plate, validation sticker or disabled parking permit (no theft involved).

STEP 2: Find the location on the map

Please click on the map where the occurrence took place and instructions will appear. If your occurrence falls within an OPP-policed municipality, or if it falls on an OPP-policed provincial highway, the officer managing these occurrences can accept your report. If the location of your occurrence falls within another police service’s jurisdiction, you will be referred to that municipal police service to file your report.

If you are having trouble, you can skip ahead to the next step.
