StreetSafe online tool. Use it to report times you feel unsafe on the street

In September, the Government launched the trial of a new digital tool to allow members of the public to flag areas of concern anonymously on a map.

This is just one step in a national approach to tackling violence against women and girls and the initial pilot has now been extended until at least April 2022.

The online tool, named StreetSafe, allows for members of the public to anonymously drop a pin onto a map and describe factors that caused them to feel unsafe.

This can range from a whole host of reasons, including public harassment to a poorly lit-walkway.

The anonymous information and data is then used by local policing teams to improve wellbeing and safety within those areas.

The tool can be found here.

Please note that this tool should not be used as an alternative for reporting crime and serious incidents.

As the information is anonymous, we are unable to follow up with any reports through this digital platform.

To report a crime in progress, always call 999. Call 101 for non-emergencies and to report any information, or you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The StreetSafe tool is a national tool through the website.
