Reporting problems makes a difference

for the whole of North Laine

Brighton & Hove Council and Sussex Police prioritise their responses according to the number of incidents logged with them. So as a community we need to log incidents on a regular basis. The authorities are much more likely to respond to incidents and issues previously logged than one-offs.


Please help us improve North Laine and report everything, every time. From anti-social behaviour such as drug taking, tagging, late night noise and vandalism to criminal activity such as drug dealing and break ins please report it every time you see it. This can be done online, as well as by phone. Remember to take photographic evidence if possible. See below for phone numbers and email addresses.

The NLCA is not able to log individual issues on behalf of members. However, do please keep us informed if you have an ongoing issue you are repeatedly logging. If we can help you further and pursue it where appropriate we will do so.

In an emergency always dial 999

for police, fire, ambulance or coastguard

For less urgent matters and advice please contact

Sussex police (24 hr non-emergencies)     101

or email:

Crimestoppers (24 hr)                              0800 555 111

For tags

Take a photo of the tag. Then email it

Subject: Tagging Graffiti Report REFERENCE: 47200105494

Then include your name, address and a contact number and say where the tag was found (eg corner of Tidy Street and Trafalgar Street) and the date and time when you think it occurred. Remember to attach the photo.
