The public can now report crimes and incidents as well as non-injury road traffic collisions ONLINE directly through the Kent police website (www.kent.police.uk). Once a report is made online, the user will receive a unique reference number and a return email confirming receipt.
Kent are promoting both as a test/pilot at this stage. At the end of each form is the opportunity for the public making a report to give them feedback on using the forms.
The overall aim is to provide another choice for how the public can report crime or incidents as well as try to reduce the number of people calling 101 on non-urgent issues that could easily be dealt with through digital contact (which increasingly a lot of people prefer and have asked us to provide).
