Online Crime Reporting Process

When you are prepared to enter your online report, the online reporting system will ask you several questions. The process takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and includes six steps.  If you have questions while entering your report, please call the online reporting help line at 780-391-6001. Please note that this number is only available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m on non-stat-holiday weekdays. 

View our EPS Online Crime Reporting video tutorial below for a step-by-step visual guide on how to use the Online Crime Reporting system.

Step 1 – We will ask you a few questions to make sure your incident fits the criteria for online reporting.

Step 2 – We will ask for some basic information about you and/or your business.

Step 3 – We will need to know the date, time, location and a description of the incident.

Step 4 – We will need the details of your vehicle and/or property.

Step 5 – You will have a chance to review what you have entered and make modifications, if necessary.

Step 6 – You can submit the report. At this point, you will be assigned a tracking number and can print a copy of the report for your records.

After submission:

  • All reports filed using the Citizen Online Police Reporting System will be reviewed.
  • Upon review, you will be contacted if further investigation of your incident is needed.

Upon approval, you will be issued an official file number and emailed a copy of the report.
