Online Crime Reporting

To report a crime in progress, or for immediate police assistance

  • Call 9-1-1 or contact your local RCMP detachment or the police force in your area. Do not text message 9-1-1.
  • If you live outside of Canada, contact your local police service and ask them to make a request for assistance from the appropriate Canadian law enforcement agency.

The RCMP does not accept reports of crime via email or social media.

Did you know? Online Crime Reporting

Online Crime Reporting (OCR) gives New Brunswickers, in RCMP area of jurisdiction, an alternate way to report certain non-emergency crimes without calling the police, or visiting a detachment.

Online crime reporting is not meant to replace other forms of reporting crime. Always call 911 in an emergency.

RCMP non-emergency line is 1-888-506-RCMP.

How does it work?

The easy-to-use website guides you through a series of questions to give police information about your incident.

At the end, you will receive an email confirmation with an incident number and a report, which can be used for insurance purposes. The entire report takes about 15 minutes.

All reports submitted via OCR are reviewed by the RCMP, and are entered into the RCMP's record management system.

A police officer will contact you if more information is required.

Why should I use OCR?

  • Available 24/7
  • No need to visit or call a detachment
  • Provides report that can be used for insurance purposes
  • Contributes important information to assess crime trends

What can I report using OCR?

  • Mischief/damage to property under $5,000
  • Theft under $5,000footnote 1
  • Lost property

Do NOT use OCR if

  • Stolen property includes firearms, credit cards, or personal identification (e.g. driver's licence or passport).
  • The value of stolen or damaged property exceeds $5,000.
  • There are witnesses or video evidence of the crime.

Incidents that do not meet the criteria for OCR are directed to the RCMP's non-emergency line 1-888-506-RCMP.

Call police or 911 immediately if the incident is still in progress, or if it is an emergency.

Filing a false police report is a crime.
