How to Report Harassing Text Messages to the Police

Updated on March 21, 2017

"Harassment" is legally defined as repeated, unwanted contact. This contact can come in any form, from in-person contact to internet or phone communications. Harassment via text message is yet another form that can be very brutal, emotional and scary for the individual being harassed.

Harassment does not have to be threatening to be "harassing."

It can take the form of abusive messages or text message "spam." Regardless of the situation, it is not legal nor justified and you have the right to take action.

Here are the specific steps to take in order to report a case of text harassment.

HAVE YOU BEEN TEXT MESSAGE HARASSED?

See results

1. Save the Harassment Data

Depending on your phone, you may be able to take a "screenshot" of the data. If your phone is not capable of doing so, you can use a camera to take photos.

You will also want to "Lock" or "Protect" each harassing message. But you still must be sure to have backup copies in the event that something happens to your phone so your data is not lost.

2. Get Your Cell Phone Records

You should be able to login to your account and download your cell phone records. If you do not know how to access them, call your phone provider or Google Search "How to Get Phone Records for (Your Make/Model of Phone)." Be sure to save and also print the records that coincide with the harassment you are experiencing.

I suggest taking a highlighter and highlighting the exact lines on the records that show the harassment.

3. Compile All Evidence

The most important step (besides having all of your evidence) is to organize it in a fashion that makes it easy for police to navigate through. File folders might help.

Lay out all of your data by "type." For example, one folder will be your photo evidence, a second folder will be your print-outs of your cell phone records, a third folder can consist of the proof of all the efforts you have made to stop the harassment; such as evidence via screenshot of you telling the offender to "stop harassing me" as well as any other efforts you have taken.

Another folder can consist of any "history" you have had with the harasser. For example, if the harasser is a former friend or date; compiling evidence of the relationship-gone-bad and your decision to end the relationship is of great use to police. Any email correspondence, Facebook messages or other evidence you have that shows what led up to the harassment is very important.

You can opt to have as many folders as needed to provide police with all evidence in regard to your complaint. Be as thorough as possible. If the individual who is harassing you is also harassing others, it is imperative to gather evidence that links it all together.

"Harassment" is legally defined as repeated, unwanted contact. Harassment does not have to be threatening to be "harassing."

4. Make an Index

The index above is an example of what is used in court to provide evidence. As you can see, it is laid out very clearly and easy to read. Label each of your folders to match the contents within and create an index similar to the one above that allows the detectives to go directly to the folder they need without digging through mounds of paper.

TIP: If you need to make "notes," write them onto a quarter-page size piece of paper and then staple the paper to the evidence that requires the note. An example of an important "note" would be: "On this page you will see where Mr. Doe began the harassment. In Folder #3 you will see that this is the same date that I ended my relationship with Mr. Doe."

I like to tab my folders so they are mega-simple to go through.

5. Make a Matching Copy for Yourself

It is mandatory (in my opinion) that you make an identical copy of what you are providing to police for yourself. You may not be able to get the files you turn over to law enforcement back for a very long time (if at all), depending on how far your case goes.

In the event that police need to speak to you about evidence, it is a breeze to pull out your matching copy and refer to "Folder #6, page #4, paragraph #2" and so on.

Who Do You Think Is MOST LIKELY to Text Harass?

See results

6. Include Your Contact Information

Make sure you include your contact information on the very front of your binder or folder that contains your evidence. Do not limit your contact information to just your name and phone number. Include your address, email and an alternate contact phone number.

If you have information about your harasser (name, nick-names, aliases, email, address, etc), make this its own folder. Do not include this on the main page, as you do not want your evidence accidentally returned to your harasser instead of you.

7. Go to the Police

If you know where your harasser resides, you will need to go to law enforcement in their area, not yours, even if they live in the next city over.

When you enter the police station, ask to speak to a detective. Most likely you will need to explain your case briefly to the person working the front desk area. When providing your explanation keep it short and simple.

Speak clearly and without emotion. Stating things like "John Doe is a basket-case and psychopath who needs to be locked up!" is not effective and will not get you help any faster (even if John Doe is indeed a basket-case psycho who really does need to be locked up).

Instead, use keywords that explain your issue, such as "John Doe began severely harassing me through text messages on (date). I have asked him to cease numerous times. The harassment has became worse and I am now fearful for my safety as well as my family's safety. I have brought all of the corresponding evidence of John's harassment with me."

If you are unable to speak to a detective, be sure to get a business card for both the officer and detective. If business cards are not available, record the officer's name and the detective's name as well as the detective's phone number.

Providing the harassment doesn't get "worse" (meaning John Doe doesn't make a threat like "I am going to kill you tonight"), wait a few days then follow up directly with the detective.

An Important Issue About Cyber Crime

Unfortunately, many cities and/or states are still learning how to address cyber bullying, internet harassment, SMS / text harassment, and so on. The reason for this is because before the internet become a tool to harass and threaten, police were given "jurisdictions" and each law enforcement agency operated within their jurisdiction.

When a "crime" occurs on the internet, many law enforcement officials do not know how specifically to deal with the issue since the crime occurred online. "Cyber space" is not in a specific jurisdiction.

      Michael Huke a senior manager at Lloyds Bank HQ Bristol, a record of his nefarious activities, each reported to Lloyds Bank and Avon and Somerset police where applicable, NO action has been taken by either party.

      Please view ‘Michael Huke’ on YouTube and witness his disgraceful conduct.

      1. CCTV of Michael Huke shouting abuse and videoing his neighbours within their premises.

      2. Assaulting neighbours physically and verbally, captured on CCTV and audio.

      3. Offensive and unlawful TEXTs sent by Michael Huke……..

      a) TEXT ‘My secretary gives me a blow job when I’m allocating bonuses

      b) TEXT ‘Kompany and Fernandinho (Manchester City footballers) are Northern black c*nts’.

      c) TEXT ‘Antonio Horta Osario (Lloyds Bank CEO) has no balls because he was off sick at the priory for 6 months’ suffering from a nervous breakdown.

      d) TEXT claiming ‘He would wind up 2 neighbours (he was hostile towards) so much, he would let them Twat him and get them done’. Plus more TEXTs of a similar grossly offensive nature.

      4. When asked by friends the wealth of a landlord neighbour (that he was in conflict with), he answered ‘neither the landlord or his wife bank with Lloyds Banking Group and never have had accounts with us’. Within his ‘position of trust’ how did he determine that information, had they banked with Lloyds he would surely have probed their accounts?

      5. He was prosecuted, when caught on covert CCTV, watching his dog defecate outside a neighbour’s property and not clear it up.

      6. He signed an ABC (Acceptable Behaviour Contract) issued to him by South Gloucestershire Council ASBO team.

      7. Attacked a 71 year old man because he’d parked briefly on the road outside his house; captured on CCTV, video/audio recorded and independently witnessed (view on YouTube).

      8. The 71 year old victim of the attack and one of the witness’s (who’d videoed the attack) were arrested and held in custody (several months after the video of the attack had been uploaded onto YouTube, (by persons unknown), charged with uploading the video, (which was factual and not menacing in character) as it discredited Michael Huke in front of his staff and jeopardised his job at Lloyds Bank HQ Bristol. No charge was pursued. This arrest was almost certainly influenced by Lloyds Banking Group, Freemasons, a police sergeant friend who lives nearby or corrupt members of Avon and Somerset Police, possibly a combination of them all.

      Since the above he works from home one or two days each week spending time at the sports centre and maintaining his property and garden!

      These incidents plus many more have taken place over a 3 year period; all reported to Lloyds Banking Group, yet Michael Huke is still an employee of Lloyds Bank?

      You’re views, opinions, advice would be greatly appreciated.

      This person called Lilly from Phoenix kept texting and calling me after I politely told her she had the wrong number and I asked her to stop. She wouldn’t and said that I contacted her first, and I was being rude which is a lie! I wish people would stop being so rude! If you call the wrong number, simply apologize and don’t do it again! It’s that simple!

      I messaged a girl I don’t know and said my age and where I’m from and asked if we could be friends then she said if I didn’t go away she would get her husband to arrest me for harassing girls. What I did is that called harassment or am I just being paranoid

      Taki, I read your message and it broke my heart that you feel your parents to know you are gay, it's hard to tell them - I am a parent of a gay son and I am certain he may have feared the same. My guess is if you ignore him, eventually he will just go away and stop contacting you. It's doubtful that he would go to his friends at the police department it is just a scare tactic. If would he continues to call, ask your parents to have your cell phone number changed. You can be vague about why you requesting a new number if you are ot ready for that conversation with your parents. You have a right to change your mind about your feelings so never feel bad about that. Hope you find the courage to eventually talk to your parents, I bet they will be more understanding than you think. Best of Luck!

      i was texting to this guy because he seemed nice. i was sorta interested and said later i just want to be friends to see how it goes. he replies so many times "Can't wait for you to be with us". so i tried making a lie to get out of it. till later on i told the truth that it just wasn't gonna work because i got freaked out. Then he says he has friends in the police department place. that he filed report of harassment and that i will be contacted and stuff...and that freaked me out because i don't want my parents to know i am gay. and he says sorry whats done is done and there is nothing he can do. I told him sorry that he is crazy but it was not his right to get me out like that. and now im freaking out. i dont want to go to jail, nor do i want my parents to know that i am gay. They will kick me out of the house and have nothing to do with me. and i really don't know what to do. we were traveling through the town and he lives somewhere else. was on Grindr. i regret giving him my number. please if anyone knows what to do tell me...do you think the police will really get me? over something stupid just because i changed my mind? he says it cause i spammed him and changed story when all i was doing was freaking out and wanted nothing. he had 2 phones and i didn't know what to do. blocking didn't seem like the way because he messaged me right away with the second phone. and that just freaked me out even more. i told him bye and leave me alone and he responds no way not till you tell me why. and i would tell him... but nothing was good enough. so now i just dont know what to do! im freaking out n my heart is racing and im scared.

      Our teenage daughter is being text harassed by an ex-boyfriend who is now out of school. We have had some, but limited help from the police. Our biggest challenge is that after the first few messages on the guy's actual phone, the new messages are from "fake" phone numbers. There are apps out there so you can send anyone a text and the app generates a "fake" phone account so there is no way for you to respond or to trace the phone number shown. Very aggravating. The police seem only willing to help if we can PROVE it was the ex. The language and the messages indicate it is he, but we cannot prove it. Any suggestions?

      Before having blocked my ex friend due to harassment on all forms of communication and even on my husbands forms I threatened that I would do something about it if she didn't stop. And then blocked her. Can she take to legal action even though she was harassing my husband and I. Or does that count as self defense.
