Reporting Crime to the Police

Neighbourhood Watch Logo

Reporting incidents to the police is very important for a number of reasons. To help you report anti-social behaviour more effectively , we have provided a log book to record incidents. Although aimed at ASB this booklet may also help you report other kinds of incidents.

You can pass information to the police by ringing 101, or online on the Cambridgeshire Police web site or by using their chat – look for the green speech bubble icon.

If you wish to remain anonymous you can use Crimestoppers instead.

Here are a few reasons why you should report incidents:

  1. Public Safety: By reporting incidents to the police, you are helping to keep your community safe. The police can take appropriate action to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future and apprehend those responsible.
  2. Justice: Reporting incidents to the police can help ensure that justice is served. The police can investigate the incident and gather evidence that can be used to bring the perpetrator to justice.
  3. Documentation: Reporting incidents to the police creates a record of the incident. This can be useful if you need to file an insurance claim, or if you need to prove that the incident occurred.
  4. Support: If you have been a victim of a crime, reporting the incident to the police can provide you with support and resources to help you cope with the aftermath of the incident.
  5. Deterrence: Reporting incidents to the police can help deter criminal activity. If criminals know that the police are actively investigating and pursuing those responsible for crimes, they may be less likely to commit crimes in the future.

Overall, reporting incidents to the police is an important step in ensuring the safety and well-being of your community, as well as helping to bring justice to those who have been victimized.
