Rape and sexual assault

Tackling all forms of unwanted sexual behaviour on public transport is a priority for us.

We take any offence of this nature extremely seriously and we are committed to developing a transport network which is free from harassment and accessible to everyone.

Sexual offences is the term used for a variety of crimes, including sexual touching, exposure, sexual comments or any other form of unwanted sexual behaviour.

We encourage you to report anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. This includes rubbing, leering, sexual comments, indecent acts, groping, masturbation, taking photos of a sexual nature without your consent.

Unwanted behaviour

Report it to stop it

We understand that if you experience unwanted sexual behaviour, you might want to forget about it and move on. You’re not alone, many people don’t report.

However, reporting it can help us to stop it. Every report builds a picture for us and every bit of detail brings us one step closer to finding the offender and bringing them to justice.

No incident or detail is too small or trivial. What has happened is not your fault. We will always take you seriously and treat you with respect.

If you experience unwanted sexual behaviour, we want you to report it. 

We will do everything we can to bring the offender to justice. We can also use the information to make sure our officers are in the right place at the right time, to help prevent it happening to someone else. 

See a selection of our recent successes in bringing offenders to justice.

Report anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. You might think it’s too trivial to report but no one should be made to feel uncomfortable on their journey. Your report will help us to stop it happening again.
