Have you used Streetsafe?

Alert message sent 13/01/2022 16:03:00

Information sent on behalf of North Yorkshire Police

Is there a location in the Selby District that makes you feel unsafe?
  • It could be at a certain point on the walk home from work where the street lighting is out of order.
  • Or maybe there is no street lighting at all?
  • Or maybe youths are congregating, and you feel intimidated.

With the support of the National Police Chief’s Council, The Home Office has launched an online tool called StreetSafe which is to be piloted across police forces in England and Wales.
The tool allows anyone, particularly women and girls, to anonymously flag up public places where they have felt or feel unsafe and say why. It may be due to environmental issues, for example street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of feeling threatened or at fear of harm in these areas, for example being followed or verbally abused.

It’s important to note that because StreetSafe is anonymous, it shouldn’t be used to report a crime or incident to the police. People should still call 999 in an emergency and all other non-emergency incidents should be reported through 101, or online via the North Yorkshire Police website. But by using StreetSafe, members of the public can anonymously provide information which can be used by police and other agencies help improve wellbeing and safety for communities.
