StreetSafe is an online tool that enables the public to anonymously pinpoint on a map the location where they felt unsafe.
Local people are being encourage to use the tool to help identify areas where there are fears caused by anti-social behaviour and environment issues including lack of street lighting, abandoned buildings and vandalism.
The information provided will be considered alongside the extensive evidence base already gathered by police forces and used to inform the community safety activities of police and partner agencies such as local authorities.
No crime needs to have been committed in order to indicate where local people feel unsafe.
Report a crime or incident
It is important to remember that the StreetSafe tool should not be used to report crimes. To report a crime:
- In an emergency, call 999
- For non-emergencies, report a crime online on the Avon and Somerset Police website or call 101
- Report crime anonymously on the Crimestoppers website
