How Do I Report a Sexual Assault ONLINE

Welcome to the Hamilton Police Service Citizens Online Police Reporting System.  If this is an Emergency please call 911.  Using this online citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free.  Please confirm the following to find out if online citizen police report filing is right for you:

  • This is not an Emergency
  • There is no evidence that may be lost such as DNA (see frequently asked questions).  Evidence is not required to report a sexual assault
  • You have an email address that the suspect does not have access to
You should NOT file an online report if any of the following is true:
  • You are in danger (call 911)
  • The offence has just happened or the suspect is nearby
  • This is related to any form of personal violence including domestic assault where you are injured or require medical attention
  • Your email is not secure or is shared
If you answered yes to any of these points, please call us at (905)546-4925 to speak to a police dispatcher, or attend a station in person to have an officer take your report.  In any emergency please dial 911.
If your incident qualifies for an ONLINE report, we require the following:
  • The report must be filed by the victim, parent/guardian or support person of the victim
  • You must have a valid e-mail address
  • You must complete contact address information
  • You must be 16 years old or older at the time of reporting

Once you have provided the required information, you are ready to file your report online.  Please make sure to turn off your pop-up blocking software before filing the report.  If you have any questions please look at our Sexual Assault Online Citizen Police Report Frequently Asked Questions.

Upon completion of this report process you will:
  • See the words: “Your online police report has been submitted” showing that your police report is complete
  • Be given a temporary police report number
  • Be able to print a copy of the police report to keep for your records
Please Note:
  • All cases filed using the Citizens Online Police Reporting System will be reviewed within seven days
  • Once your report has been processed, you will receive an official police report number by e-mail
  • Upon review, you will be contacted by a Sexual Assault Detective
  • Filing a false police report is a crime
