How we treat your personal data when you report a community safety concern.
When you make a report to us, we'll ask you for your name, address and contact details along with other relevant information about the behaviour you're experiencing. This is so that we can assess each report to make sure we respond in the appropriate way and ensure that any relevant support is offered to you. It'll also ensure that we can keep you updated throughout the investigation because communicating with you is paramount in order for your case to progress. We will not share your information with any third party unless we have prior authorisation from you.
If a safeguarding concern is identified, your information and that of your case may be shared without consent in line with data protection and privacy laws. If you provide evidence which identifies you as the person reporting the issue, we will highlight this to you and you can choose to withdraw your evidence. If you wish to make an anonymous report, this may mean we can take little to no action to resolve your issue.
