To report a crime you can either call 911 if it is an emergency, 250-475-4321 if it is not an emergency or attend our front counter at anytime.  We are always open.

When reporting a driving complaint or suspected impaired driver please note the following:

  • Time and date
  • Vehicle description
  • Licence plate number
  • Number of occupants
  • Description of driver and occupants
  • Road and weather conditions
  • What you saw
  • Direction of travel

It is important to remember that when calling the police via 911 or our non-emergency number to please answer all the questions that our call takers ask, because those questions might be vital pieces of information for our attending officers.

 

Guide to writing a statement

  • Write your statement when you are calm and clear.  Remember your statement may become a court document.
  • Do not collaborate on your statement with other witnesses or family members.  Make it your own account.
  • Be accurate; if you are not sure of some detail make sure you say that.
  • Always provide the date, time and location of the incident you are reporting.
  • Provide as much detail as possible.  Consider what you saw, heard, smelled, tasted, felt, etc.
  • When describing a person take note of physical descriptors such as age, height, weight, hair and eye colour, scars or tattoos and clothing description.
  • Sign and date your statement and always keep a copy for yourself.
  • Your written statement should NOT include your address, phone number or date of birth.
