Some crimes now can be reported online

Submitted

Earlier this month the Alberta RCMP officially rolled out a new, province-wide online crime reporting initiative. It allows Albertans to report certain property crimes online.

This project has been initiated to ensure the public is able to report select crime types in whatever way is most convenient or accessible to them. A goal for the Alberta RCMP is to make sure all crime is reported, no matter how small. This provides the most accurate crime data and allows resources to be deployed in the areas that need it most.

Citizens will be able to report the following crimes online: Damage/mischief to property under $5,000, theft of bicycle under $5,000, theft under $5,000 and theft from vehicle under $5,000, and lost property.
