Report a crime online

Is it an emergency?  Remember, if someone is in danger and you need immediate support please call 999 now. If no service is requested but anything suspicious is heard throughout the process, BT operators will connect you to a police call handler.

If you’re in an emergency situation, need police help and are calling from your mobile phone, but can’t speak, Make Yourself Heard and let the 999 operator know your call is genuine. Call 999 and, if you cannot speak, press 55 on your mobile phone and you will be transferred through to the police. Pressing 55 does not allow police to track your location. Find out more about Make Yourself Heard by reading the guide.
