What happens when I report something?

When you make a report about suspicious activity or behaviour, a specially trained officer and police staff will take the details and pass these on for further checks.

The information you provide will be kept secure and your identity will be protected.

Your call is not recorded and you do not need to give your name. Don’t be concerned about wasting police time. Watch the film below to find out what happens when you make a report.

Remember in an emergency, if you need urgent police assistance you should always dial 999.
