Report Police Corruption and Abuse

The Crimestoppers hotline to report corruption in the Metropolitan Police has now been launched nationwide.

2,878 online reports and calls were received between November 2022 and February 2024 in relation to officers and staff at the Metropolitan Police Service. It has resulted in 728 Met Police led investigations.

‘Its success has been a very positive step for our communities in London and we are pleased that all the other forces have decided to adopt it and we will see a national roll out……..It’s vital that the public know there are clear systems in place where appalling behaviours will be challenged and addressed robustly and that those within policing know they can trust their colleagues.’

Det Ch Sup Andy Day – Met Police Anti-Corruption and Abuse Command

The Police Anti-Corruption and Abuse Reporting Service gives people an easy way to report information about a police officer, member of police staff or volunteer who they believe are taking advantage of their role and abusing their position of power. This abuse may be for financial or sexual motivation, or their conduct could be motivated by hatred or prejudice.

You can contact the national Police Anti-Corruption and Abuse Reporting Service on 0800 085 0000 or online 24/7365 days a year to provide any information you may have about a Police Service, police officer, member of police staff or police volunteer who engage in the following :-

  • Provides information or influence in return for money or favours.
  • Uses their policing position for personal advantage – whether financial or otherwise.
  • Crosses professional boundaries for sexual purposes.
  • Abuses or controls their partner, or those they have a relationship with.
  • Engages in racist, homophobic or misogynistic conduct, on or off duty, in person or online.

Call 999 if:

  • a serious offence is in progress or has just been committed
  • someone is in immediate danger or harm
  • property is in danger of being damaged
  • a serious disruption to the public is likely

Call 101 for non-emergency enquiries. You can also Report a Crime online.

‘We do not underestimate the impact recent events have had on trust and confidence in policing, including the appalling findings of the Angiolini report……The vast majority of police officers and staff act professionally and with integrity in the fulfilment of their duties to protect the public’

Chief Constable Gavin Stephens – Chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council
