You have chosen to report an incident to the police.

The police and our partners take crime particularly seriously when they are motivated by hatred. Your report will be forwarded immediately to the relevant police force for investigation but it may not receive attention for several hours.

For this reason you should never use this form to report an incident where:

  • The offender is still present
  • You or anyone else is seriously hurt or in danger
  • You think the offender may return

In the above circumstances we would urge you to call 999 and the police will respond immediately.

If you have not had contact back from your force within 7 days, please call them. You can find details of your local Police on the True Vision Police contacts page.
