reporting crime and suspicious activity

The Police rely on information from the public to identify problem areas and to solve crimes. By taking action and reporting crime, you are helping yourself and protecting others.

If you see something, say something.

If you see any suspicious or criminal activity, report it to the Police immediately. Do not put your safety at risk by confronting the offenders.

When you make a police report, you can assist by providing as much information as you can, including:

  • The date and time of the suspicious activity or incident;
  • The location and address;
  • Details about the incident and what has happened - ie. who, what, where, when, which, why and how.
  • Vehicle details such as colour, type, make, model and registration; and
  • A description of the suspicious person(s) or offender(s), including gender, age, appearance, clothing and other distinguishing features.

The City of Vincent works closely with local police, but does not act as a replacement.
