Citizen Self Reporting – Streamlining Minor Incident Reports

The OPP encourages the public to consider their Citizen Self Reporting (CSR) system when dealing with minor incidents. CSR, implemented across the province in 2014, provides an efficient alternative for reporting minor incidents and crimes. This online reporting tool can be accessed via computer or mobile devices, allowing users to report specific crimes such as theft under $5000, mischief/damage to property under $5000, theft from vehicles, lost/missing property under $5000, stolen license plates, and driving complaints directly to the OPP.

Citizen Self Reporting expedites the process, as officers aren’t required to attend the scene unless there are suspects, injuries, or emergencies. To explore this service and access Citizen Self Reporting online, visit opp.ca.
