Reporting Crime

Coquitlam RCMP is an intelligence-led police agency.  That means that we focus our resources where intelligence tells us they will have the most positive impact on public safety.  But without accurate, timely information about what's going on in your neighbourhood, we don't have all the intelligence we need. There are three simple things that you can do to make intelligence-led policing work:

Tips to avoid misdialing 9-1-1

Can Coquitlam RCMP take crime reports from people who don't speak English?

Know someone who doesn’t speak English fluently? Share these two simple tips with them to help them in case they are ever in need of emergency services:

  1. Encourage them to learn the English word for the language they do speak (i.e., learn to say "Spanish" instead of "Espanol").
  2. Teach them the English words for "police", "fire" and "ambulance". Knowing those three words in English will help speed up the process of finding an interpreter and getting the help they need.
