Reporting a Crime
If you’ve been the victim of a crime it’s really important to report it. We know that sometimes it’s not easy to decide to come forward. But we also know that if no one reports a crime, it’s as if it never happened.
If no one reports a crime, the criminal is free to commit more crime, damaging more communities and individuals.
It’s also important to report crime for your own practical purposes, like getting a Police Report number so that you can make an insurance claim.
