Report Domestic Abuse

West Yorkshire Police takes reports of domestic abuse very seriously and understands that some people might be worried due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

We have created a simple online form to allow you to report domestic abuse to us, as an alternative to speaking on the phone.

The information you give us on the form will be dealt with in the same way as any other report of domestic abuse.

If an incident of domestic abuse is ongoing, you should report it over the phone by dialling 999 immediately.  If possible go to a place of safety, for example a room with a lock on the door.

You can contact the Police 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling –

  • 999 for emergencies – if a crime is in progress or there is a danger to life

  • 101 – for non-emergencies

You can also use the online Live Chat facility, 101 Live Chat, for any queries or guidance, but this cannot be used to report a crime.

We will only contact you when you say it is safe to do so and we will use the most appropriate method of communication, unless there is an urgent need to protect you from harm.

If you are worried that someone you know is suffering domestic abuse, you should phone 101 or 999 in an emergency to report this - rather than online.

Are you completing this online form about yourself, or someone else

Sorry, we cannot accept a report of domestic abuse on behalf of someone else using this online form.

If you are worried that someone else is suffering domestic abuse, you should phone 101 or 999 in an emergency to report this - rather than online.
