Crime Prevention Tip

Crime Prevention Tip

Improvements  to the Citizen Online Police Reporting System

In October 2012, the Winnipeg Police Service launched the Citizen Online Police Reporting System, an online reporting system that allows citizens to electronically report non-violent incidents where there are no suspects.  This initiative was part of the Service’s Strategic Plan to improve public access to police processes through technological and electronic enhancements and has proven to a be popular reporting option.

The Citizen Online Police Reporting System eases the amount of time victims of crime spend reporting incidents.  The system also provides the Service with better data for crime analysis and deployment of resources and enables better management of call volumes through the Service’s Communications Centre.

In 2016, in an effort to continuously improve the service provided to the citizens and businesses of Winnipeg, the Winnipeg Police Service announced a number of ongoing improvements to the Citizen Online Police Reporting System;

In July 2016, we announced the improvement where citizens and business community partners could report incidents online and take any physical or video evidence to the closest police service centre.

In September 2016, we expanded the system to allow for the reporting of break and enter to outbuildings, specifically detached garages or sheds.

Now in January 2017, we announced the latest improvement where citizens can make reports involving non-urgent traffic or manner of driving complaints.  Some examples of these types of complaints may include stop sign or red light infractions, excessive speed, aggressive or careless driving, speeding in school zones or passing a stopped school bus with its lights flashing.

Incidents involving impaired drivers, motor vehicle collisions or events involving immediate concern for public safety cannot be reported online. We ask citizens to call 911 or non-emergency in these cases.

Citizens can now report the following incident types using our Citizen Online Police Reporting System:
  • Break & Enter into Outbuildings, detached garages/sheds
  • Damage to Property
  • Damage to a Vehicle
  • Lost Property
  • Theft - including Shoplifting & Gas Drive Offs
  • Theft from a Vehicle
  • Traffic Complaint
Online reporting does not replace traditional reporting. It is simply an enhancement providing an alternative for citizens and businesses. 

Please go to for more information on the Citizen Online Police Reporting System.

Bus Update January 12th

All schools in St. James Assiniboia School Divison are open except for Phoenix Elementary School.  Phoenix Elementary school is currently closed for the day due to a power outage.

There will be NO school bus service for the Headingley area.   Robert Browning, Westwood, Sturgeon Heights, Lincoln, Ness and Golden Gate students will be affected.

Parents will need to make arrangements for pick up from the schools affected from by the bus service cancellation to the Headingley area.

School buses  will be running inside the city limits this afternoon.  There will be delays due to the conditions.  Parents wishing to pick up their students from schools within the city limits may do so.
