Do the right thing. It's Self Evident.

Met Police Report on the Self Evident App

"Since launch Self Evident has succeeded in:

  • Becoming the leading, most practical crime reporting app on Android & Apple
  • Crucially assisting the public & Police to capture & exhibit evidence with ease
  • Saving Police time & reducing the barrier to reporting by creating a solution to the digital incapability of Police services
  • Allowing for better triaging of reports entering Police systems
  • Being recognised by the CPS as a secure & legitimate evidence provider
  • Providing Police officers evidence required to arrest & charge suspects
  • Securing convictions at court, based on evidence gathered on Self Evident"

Despite its proven value, the Met Police has said it is not prepared to help meet the costs of the App and Service, as explained here. Since this decision is now being questioned by a number of MPs we will continue to run this public service at our own expense until the Summer.  We hope public funds can then be provided to enable this public service to continue to help police officers, victims and witnesses work together to reduce crime.

 

Whether you're a victim or witness, the Self Evident app is the smart way to report hate crime and send evidence to the police.

 See how the App can help
The app  makes it easy for you to
  • safely store photo and video evidence of the hate crime,
  • record a reliable statement,
  • validate the evidence you have captured
  • seek third party support (only London & Sussex now)
  • file a hate crime report with the police from your smartphone.

The app particularly helps the police identify and support repeat and vulnerable victims. A new hate crime feature requested by The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime in London and the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner includes third party reporting. When welcoming this feature as mayor, Boris Johnson said the app "will help increase reporting even further, boosting confidence, reducing repeat offences and helping victims get the support they need".
