Report an incident online
As an alternative to 101, you can also report your non-emergency incident online through our online services
Some incidents may seem trivial, and too much trouble to bother reporting, but it's very important that you do. We target our resources according to analysis of crime reports, so if large numbers of incidents are not reported this analysis will be incorrect.
Not all reports of crime result in a visit by a police officer, but when looked at along with other reports from the same area a picture may emerge which enables the police to respond more effectively than to individual incidents.
