Below you can find details of violence related incidents that you can report to us online. Please click on the title of the incident to be taken to the reporting form.
To report assault, which is when violence is used against a person, or a fear that immediate violence will be used. Assault may involve the use of a weapon or instrument, but not exclusively. No force needs to take place for an assault, it could also include spitting at someone for example.
To report seeing someone with a firearm or other weapon, in possession of one, or information relating to an illegal firearm/weapon. PLEASE NOTE – this form must only be used if you cannot contact police by 999/101 to report the incident.
To report threats or threatening behaviour, such as where you have received verbal or written threats from another person, or there is an incident where someone's conduct could be perceived as threatening.
To report a hate crime or hate incident. Hate crime is any criminal offence which is motivated by prejudice or hostility (or perceived by the victim to be so) against a person’s race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. A hate incident is something that may be experienced that is upsetting or frightening, which doesn't meet the threshold to be classed as a criminal offence.
To report robbery, which is when a person uses force, violence or fear of violence immediately before or at the time of a theft.
To report witness intimidation, which is when threats or persuasion are used to try and make a witness not give evidence to the police or courts, or to give evidence favourable to a defendant. PLEASE NOTE – this form must only be used if you cannot contact police by 999/101 to report the incident.
