SD&G – If you are the victim of a minor crime in SD&G, you can log on to report it.

The O.P.P. has made a renewed push for its online reporting service, similar to what the Cornwall Police Service has.

The crimes you can report include: theft under $5,000, mischief and damage to property under $5,000, mischief and damage to a vehicle under $5,000, theft from a vehicle, lost or missing property under $5,000, stolen licence plates and driving complaints after they have happened.

You can access the online reporting system here.

The O.P.P. said it responded to over two million 911 calls last year in Ontario that weren’t an emergency, where officers were sent to the scene in just over a million of those occurrences.

It hopes the online service will allow for more officers to respond to real emergencies.
