Report an incident online
The online portal
As an alternative to 101, you can report your non-emergency incident on our online portal.
Also on the portal, you will be able to track the status of your report, read a number of knowledge items relating to your incident, and live chat with members of the force.
Please note that the online portal is not compatible with Internet Explorer.
To use the portal, customers must first register for an account. Registration is required to ensure contact details are available should an incident need to be investigated further.

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.
Not all reports of crime 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.
Did you know that you can report anonymously?
If you want to report crime or suspicious activity, you can contact Crimestoppers with the information anonymously.
You can do this by calling them on 0800 555 111 or by completing their online form.
