SW ROCU does not take reports of crime.

All reports should be directed to the relevant police force. Within the Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Avon and Somerset, Dorset, and Devon and Cornwall areas you should direct your enquiry to them or phone 101.


You can also provide information to independent charity Crimestoppers.  They never ask for your personal information and do not track your device. Call them on 0800 555 111 or fill in an anonymous online form.

Reporting cyber crime

If you are concerned that you have been a victim of cyber crime, report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, or contact them online.

Action Fraud operates a 24/7 phone line for organisations experiencing a live cyber attack, enabling you to get immediate help and advice from fraud and cyber crime specialists.

We strongly encourage all victims or cyber crime to report to Action Fraud. Reporting not only provides vital intelligence that aids investigations, but it also informs informational campaigns which can help prevent others becoming victims of cyber crime.

If you have received an email which you’re not quite sure about, you can forward it to the NCSC’s Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) at

More information on the SERS can be found at
