Enhancements To Reporting Processes

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winnipeg Police Service will be enhancing our existing Non-Emergent Reporting process. The goal of these changes is to ensure:

  1. Appropriate and prompt service delivery to citizens while ensuring their health and wellbeing
  2. The health and wellbeing of Service members
  3. Meeting judicial requirements to ensure prosecution of offenders

The following changes to non-emergent reporting have implemented:

Expanded Online Reporting:

    1. Increased accepted value for all online reporting categories from $5,000 to $25,000.
    2. New Vehicle Hit and Run reporting category.

Online reporting is quick and convenient, the average report takes 10 to 15 minutes and is available on any device – desktop, tablet or smartphone.

Online reporting categories include; thefts, damages, frauds, hit and runs and retail thefts.

Expanded Telephone Reporting:

  1. Increased value for all reporting categories from $5,000 to $25,000.
  2. Telephone reports will be accepted for non-domestic theft, mischief and damage events that are not in progress.

Expanded Virtual Police Response reporting by:

  1. Virtual Police Response will now accept non-domestic assault and robbery events that are not in progress where the suspect is unknown.

Citizens reporting a non-domestic assault or robbery which is not in progress, should still call the Winnipeg Police Service non-emergency telephone line at 204-986-6222. If your report is suitable for Virtual Police Response an officer will contact you directly.

Citizens reporting a non-domestic theft, mischief or damage under $25,000 which is not in progress, should directly contact the Winnipeg Police Service’s Phone Reporting Group at 204-986-8666, Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (excluding holidays).

Online Reporting and Telephone Reporting help all of us to do our part to flatten the curve.
