CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Calgary police are increasing their online reporting services in response to calls for social distancing.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) has removed filters that prevented online reporting of crimes where there was a suspect, surveillance footage or forensic evidence.

Police have also expanded the categories for online reporting to include the following:

• Theft from vehicle (carprowling)
• Theft of property
• Theft of credit or debit card – when that is the only item missing
• Mischief to vehicle – such as vandalism, unless there is evidence of a collision such as paint transfer
• Mischief to property, including vandalism
• Lost property – with the exception of government-issued ID such as passports.
• Attempted stolen vehicle
• Break & enter into unlocked premise other than residential including sheds, parking garages, storage lockers, detached garages.
• Theft from a parkade or vehicle parked in a parkade – only if no forced entry.
• Theft of mail including deliveries from postal services such as UPS.
• Stolen property for sale online such as on Kijiji, Craigslist, Facebook.

You can submit an online report by clicking on Report a Crime on the Calgary police website.

For all other property-related offences, such as non-injury collisions, please call your local district office.
