Online Crime Reporting

Online Crime Reporting (OCR) is now available with the RCMP. OCR offers an alternative and convenient way for people to report non-emergent crime without having to call the police or visit the detachment. 

You can file an online report if:

  • You have lost something that costs less than $5,000
  • Someone has stolen something from you that costs less than $5,000
  • Someone has vandalized your property or vehicle and it will cost less than $5,000 to repair
  • The crime happened within the jurisdiction of the RCMP

You cannot file an online report if:

  • There is a witness or suspect
  • There are lost or stolen items involving personal identity, firearms, license plates or decals

All crimes reported online to the Alberta RCMP will be followed up with a phone call from a police officer within five business days.

The Alberta Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have launched their voluntary surveillance program, CAPTURE, short for Community Assisted Policing Through Use of Recorded Evidence and Okotoks is participating in the program. This allows for Okotoks residents to take an active role in crime prevention by registering their security cameras and providing RCMP access to recorded surveillance for ongoing investigations.

The primary objective of the CAPTURE program is to create a mapping program of security cameras in the community, which are an excellent crime prevention tool. The program equips RCMP with the contact information of all participating citizens, enabling the RCMP to connect quickly with participants to check their cameras for recordings that can help with investigations. Individuals who take part in CAPTURE will be helping protect their property, their neighbour’s property and supporting the RCMP in keeping the community safe.  

The program is free to join and completely secure. All video and photo footage that is produced will belong to the security camera owner, and will only be shared with RCMP on a voluntary basis. In the instance that a participant chooses to share their footage, they will be provided a storage device where they can extract their data and then provide it to the RCMP at their convenience. The database of registered properties will be confidential and accessible to RCMP only. Registered participants can remove their profile at any time should they choose to no longer participate. 

To register, residents can visit ruralalbertacapture.ca and for further information or to apply for the CAPTURE program, please contact the Alberta RCMP at 587-837-2289 or KCAPTURE@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
