Hamilton Police are making it easier and more convenient for the community to report certain types of crime.
Rather than visiting a local station or calling the non-emergency line, people can use a new online system to report lost or stolen property, theft from vehicles, and damage or vandalism to their home or vehicle.
The offence must have happened in Hamilton, there must be no known suspects, and it must NOT be a crime in progress.
While most cases involving minor thefts or damage aren’t assigned for a follow-up investigation, police say this new reporting tool will help them to gain a better overview of criminal activity within neighbourhoods that may otherwise go unreported.
