Q – Am I able to report lost licence plates or a stolen vehicle online?
A – Lost or missing licence plates or Accessible Parking Permits no longer need to be reported to Waterloo Regional Police Service or other policing agencies. To report a lost or missing licence plate or Accessible Parking Permit, a vehicle/plate owner must now visit a ServiceOntario Retail Office. Appropriate forms will be made available at those locations. To report a stolen licence plate(s), the vehicle/plate owner is still required to report the incident to police and obtain the appropriate incident number. These types of incidents can be reported online.
Q – Can I file a report for something that happened in another city or on a provincial highway?
A – No, for incidents that occurred outside Waterloo Region, or on a highway, please call the appropriate police service for that jurisdiction. For example, incidents occurring on Highway 85 and Highway 7/8 within Waterloo Region should be reported to the Ontario Provincial Police. The O.P.P. Cambridge detachment can be reached at (519) 654-0150.
Q – What is a suspect?
A – A suspect is when you or someone else knows the person who allegedly committed the crime or knows the licence plate of the vehicle the suspects were in. A suspect may also be identified through video surveillance that you know exists.
Q – Can I report a lost passport or other government issued ID online?
A – Lost or stolen drivers licence can be reported online but for all other types of ID you will need to speak with an officer for these reports. Call (519) 653-7700 and ask to speak with a dispatcher for further direction.
