After a week on the web, the RCMP’s newest tool to combat crime is getting some use.
An online reporting tool was rolled out on Nov. 20, allowing Kamloops residents to report minor crime with the click of a mouse.
After seven days, 10 incidents were reported online: four instances of mischief and two each for lost property, theft from a motor vehicle and theft under $5,000.
Over the same period, Kamloops Mounties received a total of 823 complaints, 94 of which could have been reported online.
“So far, we have not experienced any problems with the program, technically or otherwise,” RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said.
“We are pleased that some of the public have used the online reporting program and anticipate it will be used more in the future.”
