Reporting Crimes & Incidents to the Police online

N.B. If a crime or incident is in progress, please dial 999.

The public can now report crimes and incidents as well as non-injury road traffic collisions ONLINE directly to the police through their website ( Once a report is made online, the user will receive a unique reference number and a return email confirming receipt.

At this stage it is being promoted as a test/pilot system. At the end of each form is the opportunity for the public making a report to give feedback on using the forms.

The overall aim is to provide another choice for how the public can report crime or incidents, as well as trying to reduce the number of people calling 101 on non-urgent issues that could easily be dealt with through digital contact (which increasingly a lot of people prefer and have asked the police to provide).
