The Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service has launched an online reporting system for the convenience of communty members. The online reporting system is accessible on their website homepage and is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
The system was developed to assist citizens in reporting minor occurrences where there are no identifiable suspect(s) and the damage or theft value is below $5,000. Completing the online report meets the same reporting requirements as speaking directly to a Police Officer.
An incident number will be generated and provided to the complainant, and the system also provides an opportunity for the individual reporting to later provide a supplemental report should further information come to light. If a suspect is later identified, a Police Officer will investigate as usual. This system is not to be used in emergency situations or when a crime is in progress.
