One of the Apps we recommend for versatile use in the borough of Tower Hamlets.
This App is run via Council services but would be ideal also for Neighbourhood Watch purposes to connect to Police, but it would need for the Police to adopt this as reporting method, which they currently do not do.
Love Your Neighbourhood is used by various local authorities and after you’ve downloaded it, you choose the borough you are in.
Then you get an amazing menu:

As already stated, this could be adapted for police reporting use.
