ABBOTSFORD Police on Friday announced that now you can report non-emergency incidents quickly and efficiently to ensure they are aware of crimes that are occurring and allow you to get on with your day.
The Abbotsford Police online reporting has been recently updated and expanded to include a greater number of reporting categories, including:

Citizens can access the online reporting directly at https://www.abbypd.ca/online-crime-reporting.
Once in the “Report A Crime” section, users are provided reporting criteria and instructions, and will be guided through a series of easy steps.
The updated online option is not limited to reporting new incidents – it also allows users to upload a statement for a previously reported incident, to request traffic enforcement and to request a Police Information Check (criminal record check).
This enhanced option serves to streamline the Abbotsford Police Department’s reporting process, and to provide an additional reporting option to citizens. Online reporting does not replace traditional reporting methods; citizen may continue to call 604-859-5225 or text 222973 to make any of these reports, said Sgt. Judy Bird.
