How do I Report Crime?

How do I Report Crime?

You may be either a victim of crime or a witness to the crime. Well, it is not easy to come forward. But, if no one reports crime to the Police, criminals commit more crime, damage more property and finally justice is denied forever.

It’s also important to report crime for your own sake as getting a crime number from the police will trigger the investigation.

How to report a crime?
  • Alert the nearest policeman on the street
  • Nothing like reporting crime to the policeman on the street directly!. This will ensure the quick reaction, sense of security in you and swift investigation.

If you do not see any policeman, then…
Dial 100 (Any Phone) or Dial 112 (from your Mobile) or 040 - 27852333 or 23261166
In an emergency or if you are facing immediate threat, dial 100 and ask for the police help. Information you give will be passed on to the local police without any delay. It’s always better if you give your contact number to the control room to guide the police patrols.

Going to your local police station :
At the police station you will be asked to provide details of the crime and make a statement about the facts of the case. Depending on the contents of your complaint, Police will register a case under relevant sections. If you find the response at the police station inadequate, you can always contact divisional and zonal officers. Contact us

You’ll receive a FIR Number (crime number) that you can quote to find out about the progress of your case and to make any kind of claim.

Reporting a crime anonymously :

It is not compulsory that you should give your identity when you report crime to police.

You can always convey the details you know about crime by dialing to local police station or write letters to police officers or send emails
   Please Remember :
  • By giving information about crime you will not be called to Police station as Witness
  • You will not be made as a witness against your consent
  • Even if you are a victim, your details will not be made public by police against your  will.
