Reporting a crime

Reporting a crime

If you have been a victim of crime, are worried about a friend, or you have seen something happen to someone else, you can report it to the police.

In an emergency: dial 999
An emergency is when a crime is taking place right now, you have just seen it happen, there is a risk of injury or you life is in danger, or a risk of serious damage to property.

In a non-emergency: dial 101
Use this number to report something that isn’t an emergency, or if you want to ask the police a question.

Report a crime without revealing your identity
If you’re worried about going to the police or you don’t want to reveal your identity when you report the crime, you can report crime anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers is a charity, entirely independent of police. Crimestoppers never shares details with police of people who have got in touch.
