StreetSafe | Surrey Police

StreetSafe is a service for anyone to anonymously tell Police about public places where they feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, eg street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, eg being followed or verbally abused.

Please note: ‘StreetSafe’ is not for reporting crime or incidents, it is a way anyone can anonymously document concerns regarding any “dark spots” or “concerns regarding people congregating.

This then allows us to collate the information and tackle the issues.
