How to report

Reporting is vital when it comes to tackling anti-social behaviour, as it paints a bigger picture of the issues within your community, and helps us to implement long term solutions.

Lichfield District Council encourage your reports via the online form. Alternatively, you can call to report over the phone.

Please note, if you are witness to any criminal damage or there is immediate danger to life, please call the police on 999. 101 is also available for any non-emergency and out of hours reports.
