Police Forces across England & Wales are using a new system called Single Online Home (SOH). This is a policing portal which allows the public to report crimes, incidents and information online.
The police non-emergency phone number 101 remains available if personal contact is required. Using SOH significantly reduces wait times for those reporting crimes or incidents, or if you simply wish to provide information to the police. Reporting online via SOH is easy and effective.
The new portal can be found at the Sussex Police website. In addition to the Report area, you will find a new box "Tell us about …". There is a drop down option where you can select, for example, "Something you've seen or heard".
If reporting a crime or incident which has occurred in Sussex, SOH is available online via Contact Us/Report. You can scroll further down that page to see other options.
SOH should not be used for an emergency - dialling 999 remains the means of contact if there is danger to a person or if a crime is being committed.
All reports submitted via SOH will receive an immediate acknowledgement message. Reports are reviewed in live time, and within 48 hours Sussex Police will provide a personal response from a named staff member.
If you have concerns with litter, noise, or drug related litter nuisance, set up a My Hastings account and report.
Anything associated with street drinking and antisocial behaviour not possible to report above send to firstname.lastname@example.org
