Reporting a crime, anti-social behaviour, intelligence or suspicious incidents

Road and area representatives are asked to encourage reporting of all incidents in their area, however small, using the established Police and Southampton City Council reporting procedures (see these below). This helps the Police to build up evidence of anti-social and criminal activity in Highfield and to see when, where and for how long to direct and/or increase their patrols. This also helps the Police to identify patterns of crime behaviour.  This policy has been communicated to HRA by a Police Inspector for Southampton North. Reporting is, therefore, of great importance!

The Group is NOT a substitute for reporting crime and members are actively discouraged from taking the law into their own hands.


Established Police and Southampton City Council reporting procedures for crime and anti-social behaviour incidents, intelligence and suspicious incidents:


  • Telephone 999 in an emergency, including whilst in the process of witnessing a person or property at immediate risk (property being anything from cars, phones, money, doors, etc.)



  • To report a suspicious incident/behaviour or one that can add intelligence on a potential crime; or to report intelligence: there is a section at the bottom of the front page of the Police online portal form https://www.hampshire.police.uk/ro/report entitled ‘Tell us about’. Select the option ‘Something you’ve seen or heard‘. In the additional online website form https://www.hampshire.police.uk/, ‘Tell us about’ is at the top of the first page. If these do not work satisfactorily, you can email PC Adam O’Neill (Community Engagement and Liaison Officer for Portswood, Swaythling and Bassett) and he will action such information.  His email is: adam.oneill@hampshire.police.uk . However, it is recommended that you always try the website first as PC Adam O’Neill might be off sick, away, or off duty and therefore the information might not get logged.
