Vernon North Okanagan’s Online Crime Reporting tool allows public to report non-emergency, mostly property-related crimes

The Vernon North Okanagan’s newest crime reporting tool has officially launched.

And that’s no blarney.

As of Wednesday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, North Okanagan residents can report less serious crimes to police online.

The new Online Crime Reporting tool allows the general public to report non-emergency, mostly property-related crimes that are not in progress, or require no further follow-up by a police officer.

Specifically, citizens with a valid email address are now able to report the following crimes online using a computer, smartphone, or tablet:

  • Lost or stolen items* under $5,000;
  • Property/vehicle damage or vandalism that will cost less than $5,000 to repair;
  • Lost or stolen license plates or decals;
  • Minor traffic-related complaints.

*Items cannot involve personal identity or firearms
