Kamloops residents can now report traffic complaints and stolen licence plates to RCMP online. 

Kamloops RCMP online reporting tool has been available since last year for people to report minor crimes online.

The crime reporting tool has now been expanded to allow reporting of some traffic complaints and stolen licence plates and registration decals, according to a release.

The goal of the tool is to free up time for police dispatchers and officers to respond to more serious crimes or emergencies.

Citizens can report the following crimes online:

  • Damage / Mischief to vehicle or property under $5000
  • Hit and run to an unoccupied vehicle or property
  • Theft of bicycle or property under $5000
  • Theft from vehicle under $5000
  • General driving behaviour reports that are not in progress
  • Stolen licence plates or insurance validation decals

However, crimes that have a witness or suspect, with the exception of traffic complaints, must be reported to RCMP directly and not online. Lost or stolen items involving personal identity or firearms must be reported directly as well.  

Those whose reports meet the criteria will only need to provide their name, address, phone number and email. 

To fill out a report to the Kamloops RCMP, click here to access the online reporting tool. 

Remember that knowingly filing a false police report is a crime, and victim services will not be available for crimes reported online.
