The Partner Agency Information Sharing form is now ‘live’ on the Devon and Cornwall Police website.
This portal is an accessible way for partners to share information about vulnerability and crime and will make sharing intelligence easier and more effective.
Sharing information partners lawfully is vital so we can work together to understand the threat and harm to the most vulnerable people, as well as the risk others pose.
If you believe a child or adult is vulnerable or being exploited can use this form to provide intelligence or information that you think Devon and Cornwall Police should be aware of.
If you’ve witnessed something that could be relevant to vulnerability or exploitation do not ignore it, please report it.
Intelligence submitted via this form could include a variety of points such as; information about a concerning incident, suspicious activity, an unusual exchange between two or more people or something that makes you feel uncomfortable.
When supplying information please provide as much detail as possible, (full names, addresses and dates of birth whenever known, descriptions, vehicle registration details, telephone numbers). Anything that can assist the police in identifying the people and places involved or developing the information further. If you know the identity of the person(s) or place(s) please ensure that is included to make our response as effective as possible.
In most cases we won’t be able to give updates on what has happened with the submissions however with the new portal we will be able to provide partners with data on numbers and types of submissions from their organisations which I know many of you wanted. Crucially all of the data used will be included in the profiles we share with you around organised crime and vulnerability.
Please remember that this isn’t a referral form and does not replace any pre-existing referral or statutory safeguarding procedures.
Always call 999 if there is an emergency, a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
The Children’s Society have created a guide to intelligence which you may find useful.
