IMPORTANT*: Submitting this form will trigger an automatic response to let you know that we’ve received your report. If for any reason you don’t want this email to come through to your inbox, for example, if you are a victim of a domestic incident and are worried that the perpetrator might find out that you’ve contacted us, we would advise you to call us directly, rather than fill in this form.

Crime Start


Crime End

Please provide as much information as possible. If, say, you are reporting a vehicle crime, please give us the make, model, type, colour and registration of any or all of the vehicles involved and details of the incident. For example:
"Sometime between 8pm and 10pm, someone broke into my car and stole my CD player. My car is a red Ford Escort estate, A123 BCD, and was parked on the road outside my home. The front passenger window was smashed and front passenger door was opened."

Were you injured as a result of this incident/crime?*

Please give details of any injuries you received and include whether you sought hospital treatment.

Was any property damaged or stolen?*

Please provide as much detail as possible about the stolen or damaged property and include any serial numbers and value. For mobile phones, please provide the IMEI number and state whether the device has a tracker facility installed and whether it is active.

Do you consider yourself to be vulnerable or intimidated?*

Please detail why you feel vulnerable or intimidated:

Has a similar crime or incident happened to you before?*

Please include brief details of the previous incidents, including any incident or crime number where possible.
This will help us understand if you are being targeted or are vulnerable.

Do you believe the incident or crime was committed because of racism, religious intolerance, hate of disability, homophobia or any other form of prejudice?*

Please give details of why you think this was a hate crime or hate incident.
Hate crime is any criminal act motivated by prejudice against someone's race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.
Hate incidents can feel like crimes to those who suffer them and can escalate to crimes or tension in a community. For this reason, the police would like to know about them and you can use this form to report a non-crime hate incident. The police can only prosecute when the law is broken, but can work with partners to try to stop the situation becoming serious.

Do you suspect a particular person/s is responsible for this crime or incident?*

Please include as much information about the person/s as possible, including names, ages, description, addresses and any vehicle details that were involved. Please also explain why you believe they were responsible.

Were there any witnesses to this crime or incident?*

Please provide the contact details for all witnesses to the incident or crime, including their name, date of birth, address, contact phone number and email address where possible.
Please note that all fields marked with a red asterisk (*) must be completed.
