How to report crime
In an emergency, (defined as if a crime is happening now or someone is in immediate danger), call 999.
In a non-emergency, telephone your local Safer Neighbourhood Team or Richmond upon Thames Police on 101.
In the Greater London area (which includes Richmond borough), you can now report some types of crime to the Metropolitan Police online. This should not be used if an urgent reponse is needed.
Anti-social behaviour and hate crimes

Graffiti is a criminal offence. If you are a victim or witness of graffiti, report it first to the police.
