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.
