New website should help Police catch more criminals


Jersey Police hope their revamped website will make it easier for Islanders to quickly report crime online so that officers can react and catch criminals faster.

The police site has had a makeover - it’s the same address www.jersey.police.uk - but it has a fresher look, new functions and is now easier to access. It has already seen ten times more visitors in its first week, with half viewing the site from their mobile phones.

As well as the redesigned online crime reporting form, the website features pages for victims of domestic abuse, an interactive map for parish pages, secure areas for key groups including licencees and the media and more video content.

Inspector Mark Coxshall said: “It is important that the force’s website is dynamic and adaptable and this new site means we can get information to people quickly and efficiently. For me, as head of the Operational Support Unit, the parish pages allow us to give out information on a community level as issues effecting one parish may not affect another. 
The online crime reporting also gives people the flexibility to report in any way they see fit whether that is in person, over the phone or online.”
