Community Safety Policing Prevention

StreetSafe tool. Report places where you or others don’t feel safe.

The National StreetSafe tool has been live for a while now (we first talked about it here). It’s well supported across our area by Humberside Police and other partners, and as it’s ASB Awareness Week, this is a very good time to bring it to your attention again. It’s a tool that anyone can use to report a place that makes someone feel unsafe. The more information collected in this way, the more intelligence there is for the Police and partners to act on.

A message about the tool from Humberside Police:

Humberside Police are proud to be supporting the national StreetSafe online tool that lets people anonymously pinpoint on a map a location where they don’t feel safe. 

You can access the online tool here on the Police UK website

StreetSafe has been introduced as part of the national response to tackling Violence Against Women & Girls and to identify areas where there are fears caused by other things such as anti-social behaviour & environmental issues. 

This is just one step in a national approach to tackling Violence Against Women & Girls and the initial pilot has now been extended.

Anyone who has concerns about a particular location is encouraged to flag it through the tool.

The online StreetSafe tool is very easy to use and includes a short series of sections to complete, with guidance every step of the way. To pinpoint the area of concern, you can place a pin in the online map or enter the location. 

If you have any concerns about a particular location, we invite you to flag it through the tool. 

This information will be considered alongside the extensive evidence base already gathered by police forces and used to inform the community safety activities of police and partner agencies such as local authorities.

No crime needs to have been committed to enable you to indicate where you feel unsafe, and it is important to remember that the StreetSafe tool should not be used to report crimes. 

In an emergency, where lives are in immediate danger or a crime is in progress, please dial tel: 999.
