Safe Space is a community of businesses that provide a safe and secure place for females to go if they feel they are being followed or under threat in any way. If you see the safe space logo, you know the business welcomes you in immediately. I have emailed the Woodchester shop whether they want to sign up for this. The training video that they will sent to shops that sign up: https://youtu.be/t9M0aUFuSbc
The StreetSafe Tool is for the public to anonymously report feelings of safety against a number of environmental or behaviour criteria with the reporter taken through a carefully worded reporting form. The data can support operational policing and policy decisions around crime prevention, problem solving, patrol plans and where conversations are needed around partnership working in the locations given. The public reporting form is accessible via Police.uk and via Single Online Home police force websites.
The ‘flare’ app is a simple-to-use smart phone app – Flare report – to report incidents anonymously. The app is really easy to use and only takes a few seconds to report a range of offences, including inappropriate touching or comments, sexual harassment, being followed and spiked drinks.
The OPCC also continue to work with the Hollie Gazzard Trust to promote their app ‘Hollie Guard’, which helps to reduce the risks to females travelling alone or meeting people for the first time. That app can also act as a very effective personal alarm and can trigger an alert to the police.
It’s a free messaging system for Gloucestershire that enables residents, businesses and community groups to participate in a two-way exchange of information about what is happening throughout the county. You can choose exactly the type of alert you wish to receive. For example, you can help tackle crime by registering for witness appeals or keep ahead of those traffic jams by registering for road closure alerts. The aim of this system is to send you relevant information from public sector agencies of your choice that is relevant to where you live.
Here you can report crimes, issues and incidents.
When you contact them, your anonymity is guaranteed – whether you choose to contact them on 0800 555 111 or by using there simple anonymous online form
