The Police’s StreetSafe tool allows you to anonymously pinpoint on a map any areas you feel uneasy or unsafe in, regardless of whether a crime has taken place. This means that the police will be able to identify areas that need improving to make the streets safer for everyone, particularly those who feel vulnerable.
When using the tool, you will be asked:
• where it happened
• why you felt unsafe, e.g. because you were followed or there was poor lighting
• why you haven’t reported what happened to the police
• your age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, if you have any illnesses or disabilities
These questions are optional, you don’t have to give us this information, but if you do it will help us to understand your experience.

StreetSafe is not for reporting crime or incidents. If something has happened to you or someone you know (including in public spaces online) you can call the Police on 101 or report online. Always call 999 in an emergency.
