Squamish RCMP has launched a new online crime reporting system for local residents.
Residents can report crime online if:
A resident has lost something that costs less than $5000
Someone has stolen something from you that costs less than $5000
Someone has vandalized your property or vehicle and it will cost less than $5000 to repair it
The crime happened within the jurisdiction of the Squamish RCMP
You want to report a Driving Complaint that is not in progress
However, online crime reporting can’t be used if :
There is a witness or suspect (this restriction does not apply to Driving Complaints)
There are lost or stolen items involving personal identity or firearms
There are lost or stolen licence plates or decals
Squamish RCMP will need name, address, phone number, and email. A typical report will take 15 minutes to complete.
The new system will improve crime stats for RCMP and increase efficiency, says Sgt. Sascha Banks of Squamish RCMP.
The Bowen Island RCMP also has a new online reporting tool to gives citizens a faster way to report less serious crimes.
