Anonymous reporting is the process of passing information to the police about a crime without giving them your information and without officially reporting the incident.
If you report anonymously an ‘intel report’ is passed on to the relevant police department in your area and this can be used to put a perpetrator on the police’s radar. It can help the police build a picture of what types of attacks are happening and where. If you report anonymously it does not mean that the person you have reported will be arrested unless a formal report is received and/or the person has access to children and/or vulnerable people.
No as the reports the police receive are anonymous.
Some people find the process of giving the perpetrator’s details to the police can make them feel safer. It can also help if you are worried that the perpetrator has access to children and/or vulnerable adults.
