In an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19, and to protect the health & safety of first responders and members of the community, a Medicine Hat Police Service call center has been established to assist the community with all non-emergency police calls for service. All inquiries and reports of non-emergency events can be provided by calling 403-529-8481 or filing a report via the MHPS mobile app or online reporting.
Online reporting must be used for reporting a crime if the loss or damage is under $5,000 and there are no suspects. Reports can be filed online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Once the information is submitted, a file number will be generated and final report returned to the email provided, usually within 24 hours.
