We are committed to keeping children safe and work closely with partner agencies to minimise the risks to children who might be vulnerable to harm.

Our Child Abuse Investigation Team works with other agencies such as children's social care and health, to minimise the risk to children who may be vulnerable to harm. Our staff and officers will take every opportunity to protect and keep safe children who are at risk.


If you don't have anyone you can talk to, you can call ChildLine for free on 0800 1111, or visit their website. You can talk about any problem and there will always be someone there to help you sort it out.

How to report it

Please don't be worried about talking to the police. We will always listen to you and take what you tell us seriously and do everything we can to help you.

If you think a child is in imminent danger please call 999.

If you are concerned about a child who might be at risk of harm or abuse, or is being ill-treated or neglected, we would prefer to speak to you on the phone (by calling us on 101) or in person. However, if contacting us online is the safest way for you to get in touch, you can complete our secure online reporting form
