Reporting sexual harassment on the rail network
We know that sexual harassment in public places can have a significant and debilitating impact on those who experience it and/or fear it. It can affect perceptions of safety and confidence. British Transport Police (BTP) is committed to ensuring victims and survivors of sexual harassment receive a consistent and supportive service regardless of where they are in the country, when they report what has happened to them.
By reporting any incidents to BTP, whether you have directly experienced it or have been witness to it, each report helps us to build a picture of the offending behaviour. It takes courage to report sexual harassment and anything that has made you feel uncomfortable is worth reporting. Be assured we will always take you seriously.
Building on our work with Transport for London and the Report it to Stop it campaign, we are working with our industry partners nationwide to ensure that you can travel safely and free from any kind of harassment.
The majority of people using and working on public transport will be safe and secure but if you do experience sexual harassment as you travel, tell us so we can act.
To report an incident, text us on 61016, send us the details via our online reporting tool or call 0800 40 50 40 at any time.
If you’re in immediate danger, always call 999.
