Flare Report App
Street harassment is not OK
A new, free smartphone app – Flare Report – has been launched to help women and girls feel and be safer on the streets of Northamptonshire.
Flare Report app allows women to quickly and anonymously make a report about inappropriate behaviour on the street. It's not for emergencies, Flare Report is a way to tell the police about street harassment and similar incidents. Most women do not report incidents of street harassment – like cat-calling or inappropriate behaviour – so the information submitted on Flare Report will help build a clearer picture of what is happening in the county. This will enable the police and other partners to understand where inappropriate behaviour is happening, and take action to stop it.
Flare is free to download and can be installed on any mobile device.
