Answer for Online crime reporting

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS are aware of the Sussex work and are currently developing their own solution to enable on line reporting of crimes.  The intention is that during 2016 the MPS will launch a 'digital police station' where the public can choose to address non-emergency matters online. As part of this work they intend to enhance the current online crime reporting service, which is already used by over 400 victims of crime per week.
