The Haliburton Highlands OPP is reminding you online reporting is available for minor crimes.

Constable Tim Negus says this system is an alternative to having an officer attend a scene for a minor incident.

Negus says online reporting allows residents to report crimes like lost property, stolen license plates, thefts, driving complaints and property damage.

Police say this is completely optional, and an officer will still attend a call for service if desired.
