The Golden Rules of Reporting
Trust your instincts - Call 999 if you are in threat or need urgent response.
For non-urgent issues, persevere with 101 to speak to the police if you need to (If possible, do this at quieter times to avoid long wait times).
Information to give
location, as much detail as possible
photos/videos if you can take safely
ALWAYS REPORT via website or via an app - it’s the only way the full picture of incidents can be understood and resources allocated accordingly.
Get the apps – it makes reporting much easier and sends the information direct.
