There may be times when you want to report an incident, or give us information to help us solve crimes, but you don't want anyone to know who you are.

If this is the case you can call Crimestoppers. They are a UK charity, independent of the police, which means if you call them, you won't have to give your name. It also means you won't have to give evidence or go to court.

You can also report to crimestoppers online using their secure form.
