Over the past week, Kenora OPP laid 35 charges under the Criminal Code and 73 under the Highway Traffic Act.

The OPP is reminding the public about their online reporting system as an alternative to having an officer attend a scene for a minor incident. Citizen Self Reporting (CSR) rolled out across the province in 2014 and it is an efficient system as a means of reporting certain minor incidents and crimes.

The OPP’s Citizen Self Reporting is an easy-to-use internet reporting tool that can be accessed from a computer or mobile device and sent directly to the OPP anywhere, anytime. In an effort to enhance our service delivery, this online reporting system allows the public to report specific crimes such as lost property, stolen license plates, theft from vehicles, driving complaints, and property damage without an officer having to be dispatched to the scene, provided there are no suspects, injuries or the incident is not an emergency.

The applicable calls for service which fall within the CSR online reporting parameters include:

·        Theft Under $5000

·        Mischief / Damage to Property Under $5000

·        Mischief / Damage to Vehicle Under $5000

·        Theft from Vehicle

·        Lost / Missing Property Under $5000

·        Stolen License Plates

·        Driving Complaints
