In May of 2011, the Greater Sudbury Police Service was proud to announce the launch of the new online police reporting option (DORS- Desk Officer Online Reporting System) for selected, low priority crimes and property-related incidents. This service is accessible from any internet-ready device, including smart phones.
Members of the public are reminded of the availability of DORS when they want to file reports on selected incident types such as: Theft under $5000, Mischief to property (vandalism), Theft from vehicle, Mischief to vehicle, Lost or stolen license plate and Lost property.
Reports can be filed online at the convenience of the complainant in only a few minutes, is user friendly and securely protects personal information. The selected reports that can be filed online are not high priority, do not require that an Officer attend and are usually reported by phone to a Community Information Officer. After completing and submitting a report, a copy can be saved and printed for the convenience of the complainant. If required, additional information can be filed at a later time.
Reports receive the same investigative review by a Police Officer as if filed in person or over the telephone.
The web-based online crime reporting service is available through a link on the main website at www.gpsp.ca and the GSPS Face book page or accessed through public kiosks located in the lobby of the Greater Sudbury Police Service, 190 Brady Street Sudbury, and at our District II location, 135 Montée Principale in Azilda.
The Greater Sudbury Police would like to stress that online crime reporting is not suitable for reporting emergencies, crimes in progress or other serious incidents. Please call 9-1-1 or 705-675-9171.
