Something you have seen or heard

Date published: 07 March 2018 16:09

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. 

Some reports may not 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.

Below are some of the ways that you can report information to us.

Tell us

If you have seen or heard something suspicious or you have witnessed a crime taking place, you can call us directly to report.

If a crime is in progress or life is at risk, call us on 999.

If your report is not urgent, you can call us on 101.

Tell Crimestoppers

If you have seen or heard something suspicious or you have witnessed a crime taking place but you want to remain anonymous, you can report your information to Crimestoppers.

You can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

You can also give Crimestoppers information online here.
