What we promise
- We will treat you with respect
- We respect your privacy rights
- We remain committed to investigating each incident fully
Once you make a report, the information is carefully reviewed and entered into police databases. Our officer(s) will then conduct a thorough investigation. In some cases, more evidence will be collected before we contact you directly.
Safe from harassment
You have the right to feel free from harassment including unwanted sexual behaviour. We are committed to taking seriously every reported incident of sexual behaviour that makes someone feel harassed, embarrassed, or frightened.
Transit Police officers are trained to deal with all types of crimes including sexual offences. You will not be alone if you choose to report it. We recognize that reporting a sexual offence can be difficult. No incident of unwanted sexual behaviour is too small to report. A Transit Police officer will meet with you on your terms and at a location where you feel comfortable. If you would prefer, you can meet with a plain-clothes officer.
Sadly, offenders may repeat their behaviour. Reporting crimes like this could potentially stop others from becoming victims too. Did you know that most of the transit network is covered by video surveillance? Transit Police has access to this footage if they need to investigate a reported crime. This camera footage is useful for us and often helps lead to an arrest.
