What happens to your report?
By reporting your incident, you are helping us collect valuable input that the municipality of Breda can use to evoke change and improve safety measures. The municipality is tightly connected to this project and open to working with our analyses and reports every quarter of the year.
For example, we have been able to mark places in Breda as hotspots for street intimidation so that extra enforcement can be sent there. The number of our reports in Valkenburg Park was one of the decisive factors for extending camera surveillance. Besides, we are talking with important stakeholders – including the NS – to ensure that we improve safety at and around the station.
Want to make more impact?
Reporting to us is safe and can be done anonymously. However, it is not a report to the police or an Anti-Discrimination Facility (ADV). You help us enormously with this report, and if you want, you can make even more impact!
Why also go to an Anti-Discrimination Facility (ADV)?
With an ADV such as RADAR, you can report all kinds of discrimination. So, including intimidation. By making a report to an ADV, it is immediately included in the national discrimination report. As a result, in addition to Breda, your message counts throughout the Netherlands. Pay attention! Just like us, RADAR cannot prosecute your perpetrator when it comes to a street harassment incident.
When do you inform the police?
Have you experienced incidents that go beyond harassment? Was it assault, physical violence or were you raped? Then please make sure to file a report with the police. If you are unsure whether you should turn to the police, please ask us in the elaboration box. We will contact you.
Do you know the perpetrator? Please, also report this to the police, regardless of the form of street intimidation. The police may not be able to take immediate action on this. Still, the perpetrator will receive a note on his/her/their name in this way.
Do you want to talk to someone?
Would you like to talk to someone about what happened? Then call Victim Support 0900-0101 (Monday to Friday between 08.00 and 20.00 and Saturdays between 10.00 and 17.00).
The Sexual Violence Center(CSG) is also here for you. They are here for anyone who has recently experienced sexual violence. You can contact them safely and anonymously. The centre is available 24 hours a day by phone (0800-0188), or you can chat with them via the website. Tip: put CSG’s phone number in your phone. This way, you can quickly contact them if you are confronted with sexual violence.
