Remote reporting

Remote Reporting is a way of reporting a crime or passing on information without talking to the police directly.

Women's Aid East and Midlothian offer a way for victims, witnesses, carers or others to speak privately to a member of staff, and we will pass your information onto the police.

You can:

  • ask for your information to be investigated
  • leave details, but ask for your information not to be investigated
  • leave no details, and ask for your information not to be investigated (this helps police monitor areas where hate crime may be rising)

If you would like to speak to us about this, contact:
