News Release 
FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

Trail and Greater District – Trail and Greater District RCMP was one of the next detachments in the province’s southern interior to launch the RCMP On-line Crime Reporting (OCRe) tool.

Wednesday August 26, 2020 marked the official launch date of the BC RCMP Online Crime Reporting tool, now ready to serve residents of Trail and Greater District and surrounding area. As frontline RCMP officer’s investigative file loads increase, the BC RCMP continues to launch its on-line crime reporting website in communities across the province. The online reporting platform enables the general public to report non-emergency situations, mostly property related crimes that are not in progress, or require no further follow-up by a police officer.

“This tool will allow the general public to report non-emergency crimes online through the detachment website, with the goal of freeing up time for frontline personnel, including both police dispatchers and police officers, to respond to more serious crimes or emergencies,” states Sgt. Mike Wicentowich, Detachment Commander for the Trail and Greater District RCMP.

“This online system exemplifies our efforts to actively modernize our police operations here in Trail and keep up with technological advances,” adds Sgt. Wicentowich. “It will also allow our frontline personnel to focus on other essential core duties.”

Residents and business owners from across the Trail and Greater District Detachment area, which includes the City of Trail, City of Rossland, Village of Warfield, Village of Montrose, Village of Fruitvale, and the Kootenay Boundary Regional District Area ‘A’ and ‘B’, with a valid email address, will be able to use the Online Crime Reporting Tool or OCRe using their computers, smart phones or tablets to report a crime that meets the following criteria:

  1. Your report will NOT require a follow up by a police officer; and
  2. You have no witness nor suspect, unless it’s a driving complaint;
  3. You have lost something that costs less than $5,000; and/or
  4. Someone has stolen something from you that costs less than $5,000; and/or
  5. Someone has vandalized your property or car and it will cost less than $5,000 to repair it; and
  6. There are no items involving personal identity, firearms, licence plates or licence plate validation decals;
