Surrey can now report crime online

SURREY – Surrey residents can now report less serious crimes to police online. Check out the Surrey RCMP’s website at surrey.rcmp.ca, look for "Report a Crime" and click on "Online Reporting."

 

For serious crimes, calling 911 is still the way to go.

 

But examples of crimes that can be reported online are ones with unknown suspects in cases of theft under $5,000, vandalism, theft from autos, noise complaints and traffic violations.

 

"No matter how small an offence might be – a broken window or something stolen from your car – we want to hear about it," Chief Supt. Bill Fordy said.

 

Delta Police has had a "no call too small" policy for several years now.
