Community Safety

Have you or someone you know been victimised on the grounds of your race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability?

Reporting makes a difference - to you, your friends, and your community. By reporting these incidents when they happen, you can help stop it happening to someone else. You will also help us to better understand the level of these sorts of incidents within the Bailiwick, and enable us to respond accordingly.

If a person is bullied as a result of their disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity it can be distressing, confusing and frightening.  It can sometimes also lead to crimes or tension within a community. For this reason Bailiwick Law Enforcement wants to hear about any such incidents and while we can only prosecute when the law is broken, we can work with partner agencies and community groups to try and prevent any escalation in seriousness.

Tell someone

Guernsey Police has a dedicated PREVENT line for people to report any concerns.  Telephone 01481 734528.

If you do not want to talk to the police, you can still make a report by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or contacting them via their website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.  You do not have to give your name and you will remain anonymous. It is free to call.

You can give us as little or as much personal information as you wish. But please note:

  • With your details... the incident can be investigated fully and you can get the service you deserve and the support you need.
  • Without your details... the report will be used for monitoring purposes to get a true vision of what is happening.

All incidents should be reported, whether you have been a victim, a witness or you are reporting on behalf of someone else.

These incidents may include verbal abuse, physical assault, domestic abuse, harassment and damage to property.  Bullying includes name-calling, being spat at or kicked, or having your things taken or damaged.

If you are a victim:

  • Get help immediately.
  • Call Guernsey Police on 725111.  In an emergency dial 999.
  • Make as much noise as you can to alert people.
  • As soon as you can, go somewhere you know is safe.
  • If you have the confidence, tell the police why you think you were attacked.If you want to stay anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

If you are a witness:

  • Call 999 or 725111.
  • Let the police know what you've seen. Don't assume others will come forward. Many crucial witnesses walk away thinking someone else will report it.
  • Stay alert and safe.  Don't physically intervene - you could get hurt yourself.
  • If it is safe to do so, take a photograph or video on your mobile phone. Remember, however, that the police are likely to need your phone as evidence.
  • Record details of times, number plates, descriptions and so on. If you don't have a pen with you, leave a voicemail message on your mobile phone or write a draft text message. As soon as you can find a pen and paper, write down the information in as much detail as possible.
  • If you want to stay anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
