You can play a vital role by being vigilant when you are out and about and reporting anything that doesn’t feel right. You’ll never get in trouble for reporting a genuine concern, and we’ll always take your report seriously – whether it’s an unattended item or someone acting suspiciously. Don’t leave it to someone else to report it.

  • Tell a police officer or member of security or retail staff
  • Call 101 (police non-emergency number)
  • Text 61016 (on a train, tube, or at a train station)
  • In an emergency, always call 999

Remaining vigilant is vitally important. Redline has a number of Behaviour Detection Courses designed to suit your needs and to cater for varying degrees of risk mitigation. If you want to learn more about how to spot suspicious behaviour and what signs to look out for, then visit our BDA page.
