StreetSafe is a service that allows you to report safety concerns in public places without giving us your name (anonymously). This includes issues like poorly lit streets, abandoned buildings, or vandalism, as well as instances where you feel unsafe due to someone following or verbally abusing you.
Please note: StreetSafe is not for reporting crimes or emergencies. If you witness a crime or emergency, please call the police on 101 or report a crime online. If you're unsure whether something is a crime or not, read our advice.
Examples of situations that should be reported to StreetSafe include a poorly lit alleyway that makes you feel unsafe or a park with broken equipment that poses a safety hazard.

What we'll ask you about:
where it happened
why you felt unsafe, eg because you were followed or there was poor lighting
We'll also ask you:
why you haven't reported what happened to the police
your age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, if you have any illnesses or disabilities
These questions are optional, you don't have to give us this information, but if you do it will help us to understand your experience.
Please note: as this is anonymous, we won't contact you about what has happened but the information you give is used in the policing decisions we make in your neighbourhood. The data is also shared with government officials responsible for making our streets safer (you can read our privacy notice for more information about how we process your data).
If you choose not to report to us, please do seek help and support from the organisations and charities offering free and independent advice.
