Citizen Self Reporting (CSR) Initiative
The OPP emphasizes its online reporting system, Citizen Self Reporting (CSR), as an efficient means of addressing minor incidents and crimes. Introduced in 2014, CSR enables individuals to report certain minor incidents and crimes via an easy-to-use internet tool accessible from computers or mobile devices. It offers a convenient way to report events like theft under $5000, mischief or damage to property/vehicles under $5000, theft from vehicles, lost or missing property under $5000, stolen license plates, and driving complaints without requiring an officer to attend the scene, provided there are no suspects, injuries, or emergencies involved.

As the Kenora OPP continues to serve the community, they encourage residents to utilize these resources when appropriate, enabling efficient and timely responses to incidents while preserving valuable police resources for emergencies and more complex situations.
