This tool helps to enable people, particularly women and girls, to pin-point locations where they feel or have felt unsafe and to identify the features on why that location made them feel unsafe.
These issues could range from a poorly lit walkway to instances of public harassment and will mean concerns can be raised with police, whether or not a crime has been committed.
The information will be used alongside other data by police and partners to deliver improved wellbeing and safety for communities.
The pilot, which will run for three months, forms just one part of the Government’s whole system approach to tackling violence against women and girls.
