Safer Streets Support

In response to the safer streets survey, published in February 2022, we have compiled services that are avaliable to support you if required.

If there is a threat to life, serious injury or a crime in process, please call 999.


StreetSafe is a service that allows you to report safety concerns in public places without giving us your name (anonymously). This includes issues like poorly lit streets, abandoned buildings, or vandalism, as well as instances where you feel unsafe due to someone following or verbally abusing you.

Examples of situations that should be reported to StreetSafe include a poorly lit alleyway that makes you feel unsafe or a park with broken equipment that poses a safety hazard.

Urgent review of Clare's Law applications

We’ve commissioned an urgent review into Clare’s Law disclosures handled by Wiltshire Police.

Earlier this year, we made a voluntary referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) regarding concerns linked to disclosures made under the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (known as Clare’s Law) by one member of Wiltshire Police staff.

That member of staff is currently suspended from the organisation.

The IOPC has determined that they will independently investigate these allegations and we are in consultation with them regarding a number of additional concerns we have subsequently identified.

We are now conducting an urgent audit of Clare’s Law applications made to us since April 2015. 

The total number of applications made to us between April 2015 and the end of August 2023 is just over 3,500.

Of these 3,500 applications, information was disclosed in 1,195 cases under the Right to Ask process (where the individual makes the application regarding a current or ex-partner) or the Right to Know process (where the police or a partner agency comes across information indicating an individual is at risk of domestic abuse).

We have allocated dedicated resources to review every application made to us since April 2015.
