Some crimes can be reported online to the Halifax Regional Police. Use the online reporting form if:
- you've lost something
- someone has stolen something from you
- someone has vandalized your property, including your car. Please note that this does not include motor vehicle collisions. You must report collisions in person at police headquarters or a divisional office.
- someone has broken into your car
You can also file various online crime reports in French.
Before you report a crime through the online tool, make sure you have all relevant information, including serial numbers and values of stolen items. You may also need to turn off your pop-up blocking software.
You will receive an email—usually within 24 hours—that explains if your report has been approved or rejected or if the police need additional information from you. Approved reports will be accompanied by a PDF copy of the report and a case number that you can use for insurance purposes. The temporary reference number you receive immediately after filing your report is not a report number and cannot be used for insurance claims.
Leave a message for an officer
You can also message a specific police officer or report not-in-progress driving complaints and problem traffic areas through the “Message for an Officer” tool. Input your specific information in the "Message for the Officer" text box at the bottom of the form.
Please note that "message for an officer" submission are not monitored on weekends or holidays and will not be reviewed until the next business day. You can call the incident reporting line at 902.490.5016 if you require a more immediate response.
