The Niagara Regional Police Service recognizes the value of sharing information on community safety and security. We are committed to innovative and responsive community policing which is why we are providing public access to NRPS Crime Reports. Crime mapping provides neighbourhoods with valuable information about recent crime activity and therefore the ability to be more vigilant and implement crime awareness and prevention efforts in their homes, workplaces and community.

The information provided is not in real time. There is a natural 2 - 3 day delay in processing information. The delay is due to the technical data management and to protect the integrity of ongoing police investigations, investigative techniques and/or identity of victims and witnesses. The incidents depicted on the crime map do not represent an exhaustive list of all NRPS incidents.

Information on Sex Offenders is not displayed. The Information Privacy Commissioner has approved the release of some information from the Ontario Sex Offender Registry (OSOR); specifically, the total number of registered sex offenders residing in a geographic area, identified by the first three digits of a postal code. Anyone wishing to access the geographic distribution numbers will have to file an Freedom of Information (FOI) request with the OSOR (1-705-529-7474).

The Niagara Regional Police Service makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, as to the content, sequence, accuracy, reliability, timeliness or completeness of any of the information or data provided herein. The user of the following pages should not rely on the information or data provided for comparison purposes over time, or for any reason, or that the information is exhaustive of all incidents. Any reliance the user places on such information or data is therefore strictly at the user's own risk. Niagara Regional Police Service explicitly disclaims any representations and warranties, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of accuracy, quality, quantity or fitness for a particular purpose.

The Niagara Regional Police Service does not assume and is not responsible for any liability whatsoever for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies in the data and information provided, regardless of how caused. Furthermore, in no event will Niagara Regional Police Service be liable for any loss or damage, including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the direct or indirect use of these pages. Niagara Regional Police will not be responsible for the direct or indirect use of, or the results obtained from the direct or indirect use of this information or data. Niagara Regional Police Service assumes no liability for any decisions made or actions taken or not taken by the user of the web site in reliance upon any information or data furnished hereunder. Any use of the information or data for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited.


  • The data is intended for review and discussions as part of coordinated crime prevention initiatives to support and improve community awareness and safety.

  • These are incidents requiring police presence.

  • The data represents computer aided dispatch (CAD) final call types or slightly modified variations to protect sensitive information. These final call types are largely based on the information provided by a member(s) of the community to the Niagara Regional Police Communications Center and have been attended by an officer to determine the final closing type.

  • Incident addresses in the data have been generalized to a cross street(s) and/or the 100-block level to prevent the disclosure of actual incident location and addresses. Data visualization on a cross street(s) and/or the 100-block geographic system should be considered approximate and an attempt to derive specific addresses is strictly prohibited.

  • Computer Aided Dispatched (CAD) calls-for-service do not always equate to a criminal incident resulting in a report or arrest. Therefore the data does not include all offenses identified within the Canadian Center for Justice Statistics.  The data is subject to change for a variety of reasons, including late reporting, reclassification of incidents based on offence types or subsequent investigation, and errors.
  • There may be more than one call-for-service for any given incident reported through the CAD system (e.g. several observers may call 911 after witnessing a motor vehicle accident, disturbance or criminal incident).
  • The data will sometimes indicate where an incident was reported versus where the incident occurred. Certain incidents result in a "default address" of the Niagara Regional Police Service which does not necessarily reflect incidents actually occurring at our location.
  • Densely populated areas with a high volume of foot traffic may have more reported incidents. This does not necessarily mean that more crime occurs in the area.
  • Niagara Regional Police Service does not control the website where the NRPS Crime Reports are hosted, we only provide them the information. We have provided a help document for their site as a convenience.
