Online Crime Reporting

Nanaimo RCMP has officially launched an Online Crime Reporting tool designed to allow citizens to report non-emergency crimes in cases where there is no suspect, witness, or follow up required by a police officer which generates a report and police file number. 

All reports are reviewed and will be used to help identify trends in criminal activity in the community.  

To report a crime through the online tool, residents will need to provide their name, address, phone number, and a valid email address.  The process typically takes 15 minutes to complete. 

You can use Online Crime Reporting if:

  • You have 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
  • You want to report a Driving Complaint that is not in progress
  • The crime happened within the jurisdiction of the Nanaimo RCMP

 You cannot use Online Crime Reporting if:

  • There is a witness or suspect (this restriction does not apply to Driving Complaints)
  • There are lost or stolen items involving personal identity, firearms, licence plates or decals 

To report a crime online, please visit:

Reporting a crime online is only appropriate in non-urgent situations.  Remember to always call 9-1-1 for emergencies.
