Online Police Reporting: Report a Sexual Assault
How do I report a Sexual Assault ONLINE?
Welcome to the Windsor Police Service Online Reporting System. If this is an Emergency, please call 9-1-1. Using this online police report system allows you to submit a report immediately. Please confirm the following to find out if an online report filing is right for you.
- This is NOT an emergency
- There is no evidence that may be lost, such as DNA (blood, semen, saliva, etc.). Evidence is not required to report a sexual assault.
- You have a private e-mail 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 - If so, call 9-1-1
- 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 e-mail is not secure or is shared
If you answered yes to any of these points, please call Windsor Police Dispatch at 519-258-6111 to speak to a police dispatcher, or attend Windsor Police Headquarters in person to have an officer take your report. If it is an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
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 be 16 years 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 Reporting Frequently Asked Questions.
Once you complete your online report the following will occur:
- You will see the words: "Your online police report has been submitted". This indicates that your report was successfully submitted.
- You will be given a temporary police report number.
- You will be able to print a copy of the police report to keep for your records.
- All cases filed using the Online Reporting System will be reviewed within 7 days
- Once your report has been processed, you will receive an official police report number by e-mail (this replaces the temporary one you have received).
- Upon review, you will be contacted by a Sexual Assault Investigator (if you have requested this when filing your report).
- Filing a false police report is a crime.
