You can report a number of non-urgent crimes including theft, retail theft, criminal damage, hate crime, anti-social behaviour, and traffic collisions through the Suffolk Constabulary website, by calling 101 or report incidents when they happen to the Police through calling 999 if it is an emergency.
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. For example, if your car has been stolen, your property has been damaged, you suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood etc. You can also give police information about crime in your area or speak to the police about a general enquiry.

Dog Fouling – ESC Environment Website
If you see a dog owner who allows his or her dog to foul our streets then you can report it to our Environmental Protection Team. Where there is a persistent problem, officers will try to identify irresponsible dog owners. The Public Space Protection Order makes it illegal to fail to clear up after your dog if it fouls any land that is open to the air and to which the public have access. Inconsiderate dog owners could face a fixed penalty fine of £80 or a fine of up to £1000 if there is a conviction in the Courts.
Flooding – National Floodline website
If you see someone fly-tipping, or you want to report an area where fly-tipping has taken place, take note of the date, time and place of the incident, what the waste looks like and how much there is, descriptions of any person and/or vehicles involved along with the registration number. Do not approach them or put your own safety at risk.
East Suffolk Council (East Suffolk Council Fly Tipping) will deal with reports of smaller scale, more frequent incidents. The Environment Agency (tel: 0800 807 060) will deal with larger scale, more serious incidents of illegal waste disposal, or fly-tipping including hazardous wastes and tipping carried out by organised criminals.
