    Q965: How can I report heritage crime?

    If you witness any criminal activity/suspicious behaviour taking place at a heritage site, you should report this to your local police force.

    Most police forces have a liaison officer who will coordinate issues related to heritage crime in their area. You can contact them via 101 or, wherever there is an immediate danger to life or property and an emergency response is required, via their 999 number.

    You should also contact Historic England and/or your Local Authority's Conservation Department to make them aware of any damage to a designated heritage asset e.g. a listed building or a scheduled monument.

    Heritage Watch Schemes are being introduced to allow the public to report and share information on any suspicious/illegal behaviour encountered at heritage sites in their community. Please see the following links for more information and to see whether your local area is part of the Heritage Watch Scheme.
