Your Details
This section is optional - you don’t have to fill it in but it will help us if we need to contact you to talk about the report. All the information you provide will be assessed and the most appropriate course of action undertaken. This could include passing the information to a law enforcement agency. We will provide you with as much information as we can about the outcome of your report but circumstances may limit our freedom to do that and if you remain anonymous it will be impossible. However, we are grateful for your time and assistance in the fight against fraud and wrongdoing. If you provide contact details someone from the council or a law enforcement agency may contact you for further details. Unfortunately due to the nature of investigations, we cannot give a timescale for when that might happen.
