Crime or antisocial behaviour?

Some nuisance behaviour is a crime, not antisocial behaviour. Crimes should be reported to the police.

Only the police are able to deal with issues such as: 

  • assault
  • criminal damage, including vandalism
  • drug use, cultivation or drug dealing
  • hate crime
  • prostitution or kerb crawling

Call 999 if you or someone else is in immediate danger, or if a crime is in progress. 

If it is not an emergency, call 101 to report the incident to the police or contact Crimestoppers to give information about crime anonymously.

Hate crime

A hate crime is a crime committed against someone because of their disability, gender-identity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation. You can report a hate crime to the police online or call them on 101.
