South Yorkshire Police Domestic Abuse Online Reporting Tool

Not all victims of domestic abuse feel confident to seek help face to face or over the phone. With this in mind South Yorkshire Police have set up an online reporting tool to allow victims of abuse to get help by using the internet. Please remember - anyone in an emergency situation to please still call 999 and make use of the silent solution – press ‘55’ so police operators can listen to what is happening in the background and make a risk assessment so that the right response is sent to you.
