Whitehorse residents can now report non-emergency crimes online.
The online reporting website was launched this week as part of a pilot project. Online reporting is now available through that website and the Whitehorse RCMP mobile app.
“Citizens with a valid email address can report non-emergency crimes that occurred in the city and rural Whitehorse where there is no suspect or witness and where follow up by a police officer is not immediately required,” says a Yukon RCMP press release.
Residents can use the website or app to report:
damage/mischief to property under $5,000;
damage/mischief to a vehicle under $5,000;
hit and run to an unoccupied vehicle or property;
theft of bicycle under $5,000;
theft under $5,000;
theft from vehicle under $5,000;
lost property; and
driving complaints not in progress.
“This additional reporting tool will enhance our service delivery to residents of Whitehorse by making it more convenient for residents to report non-emergency crimes, while allowing police to focus on emergency calls for service and be engaged in the community,” RCMP say.
