Safety

Crime

If you've been a victim of crime, it is very important that you report it. It can sometimes be a difficult decision to report a crime because you may feel upset or scared. However if you don't report the crime, the criminal will be free to commit further crimes. In an emergency, always dial 999 and ask for the Police. The Police also have a non-emergency number 0845 60 60 247.

Crimestoppers

If you witness or become a victim of crime, you can also report it to Crimestoppers. Crimestoppers is a charity that allows anyone with details of criminal activity to pass them on anonymously (without giving your name).
