How do I submit intelligence?

It is really important that you provide as much accurate information as you can. Don’t assume that a particular piece of information is not relevant.

The best way to capture accurate information, is to write down the details of an incident as soon as you witness it, so that it is still fresh in your mind. For example: description of the person, clothing colour, time, car registration etc.

Why is accuracy so important?

Bear in mind that your information helps the Police with their investigations, and there is a possibility that the information you submit could result in an offender being brought to justice.
