Report a crime

Nova Scotians in areas of RCMP jurisdiction can submit an online crime report for some non-emergency incidents, such as:

  • Mischief/damage to property or vehicle (under $5,000)
  • Hit-and-run of an unoccupied vehicle/property (under $5,000)
  • Theft under $5,000 (including bicycles and theft from vehicles)
  • Lost property (including licence plates and registration tags)

After submitting the online crime report, you will receive an email confirmation with an incident number, and an officer will follow up with you in five business days.

Do not submit a report online if:

  • stolen property includes firearms, credit cards or personal identification such as a driver's licence or passport
  • the value of stolen or damaged property exceeds $5,000
  • there are witnesses or video evidence of the crime

For incidents that don't meet the criteria for online crime reporting, please use the RCMP's non-emergency line: 1-800-440-1323.
