Welcome to the Orangeville Police Road Watch Online Reporting system.

Road Watch is a community-driven program that provides citizens with a means to report aggressive or unlawful driver behaviour.

Instances of unsafe lane changes, disobeying traffic lights and stop signs are some typical types of behaviors that qualify for a Road Watch submission. Once a submission is received by Orangeville Police, the information will be reviewed by a police officer and, if deemed appropriate, a letter sent to the owner of the vehicle outlining the date, time and location of the incident. The letter will also include important messages encouraging the owner to ensure all who drive their vehicles do so in a safe and responsible manner.

Road Watch may be used in instances where:

  • No collision occurred. If the incident resulted in a collision, please call the police for further instructions;
  • The suspect driver is not known to you. If the identity of the driver is known to you, you can report the incident directly to the police;
  • The suspect’s licence plate number was obtained. A brief description of the vehicle is also needed to validate the licence plate information;

As accurate a description as possible of the incident should be submitted. Providing as much information as possible will help ensure that action will be taken against the suspect vehicle owner. If this incident occurred outside of the Town of Orangeville, your report will be forwarded upon your request to the local police service for the area where the incident occurred. Please note that there will be no confirmation that the occurrence is being investigated. It is recommended that for the most efficient response, the police service having jurisdiction over the area in which the occurrence took place should be contacted directly.

If you see an impaired driver, street racing or other behaviour that is an immediate danger to public safety please call 9-1-1.

Online Report Criteria:

  • You must have a valid email address;
  • You must provide the Vehicle’s licence plate number;
  • You must disable your computer’s pop-up blocking software before you may proceed;

Please Note:

  • Filing a false police report is a criminal offence .
  • You may be contacted by email or telephone if further information is required.
  • If you have photographs or video footage relating to your report, please retain it and note it in your complaint narrative that it is available. If it is required, you may be contacted by an officer to provide it at a later date.
