Residents can go online to report minor crimes

Victims of minor crimes can now go online to report the incidents with the launch of a new police reporting system.
On Monday, the Guelph Police Service launched CopLogic, an online reporting system allowing the community to file reports for incidents such as minor thefts, mischief, vandalism and lost property.
The selected incidents that can be filed online do not require that an officer attend, and to date they have been reported by phone to a desk officer, a news release said.
“The CopLogic system is a customer-driven application that will expedite the reporting process for our citizens as they do not have to wait for a return call from an officer,” said director Shelagh Morris in the release.
“Once the user-friendly report is completed, a temporary report number will be issued, and the report will receive the same investigative attention as if filed in person or over the phone,” she said.
“A report number will then be e-mailed to the complainant within 72 hours. Reported information is automatically interfaced with our records management system, thus saving administrative time at the back end.
“Using this online system allows us to redeploy police resources to better meet the needs within the community.”
The report information will also form part of the ongoing local statistical crime analysis program. The online crime reporting will be available through a link on the service’s website at :
