HOW TO REPORT A CRIME
IF IT’S AN EMERGENCY
If it is a life threatening emergency (e.g. fire, medical emergency, crime in progress, etc.)
IF IT’S A NON-EMERGENCY
Non-emergency issues (e.g. property theft or damage, driving complaint, damage to a vehicle, etc.) call non-emergency response at 416-808-2222. Always be sure to get the incident number, to ensure it has been logged by the police.
You can also report non-emergency crimes online at: www.torontopolice.on.ca/core
NOTE: This form allows you to append any pictures you may have.
GOT AN ONGOING COMMUNTY ISSUE?
Want to report noise complaints, aggressive panhandling, trespassing or nuisance issues, etc.? You can complete a Community Police Complaint Form. To do this, either call in to 416 808 5200 and request a Community Complaint Form (again, be sure you get an incident number.) Or simply complete the form online.
NOTE: This form does not allow you to append pictures but if you add “I have pictures” to your message, the police will reach out to get them.
If you feel there is a need for someone to actually come out (for a non-urgent community matter), you can reach out for assistance from the Community Response Unit, by phone at 416-808-5119 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
WANT TO REPORT A CRIME ANONYMOUSLY?
If you have ANY information on a crime you want to report anonymously contact CrimeStoppers:
Text: CRIMES (274637)
- Please let the CRA know about crimes you report so we can alert the neighbourhood about them (email@example.com).
- Here’s a handy dandy leaflet from Councillor Wong-Tam’s office listing all these communication channels.
- And remember… whenever a crime or a suspicious incident occurs, it’s important that you report it. The more official crime reports the police receive, the better able they are to determine the number of officers assigned to each division. And the more calls they receive from a particular neighbourhood, the more patrols that neighbourhood gets.
