Kent Police launch online reporting for crimes and non-injury road traffic accidents.

Hollingbourne Parish Council has been asked to publicise the latest online initiative from Kent Police who formerly had a policeman resident in Hollingbourne in a Police House with a mini-Police Station in Hasteds. Previously the Village Policeman lived in a Police House almost opposite the Village Shop. Today the nearest Police Station is in Palace Street in Maidstone although Hollingbourne is visited from time to time by a PCSO. Please Read More for the message from Kent Police.

Subject: Online crime reporting and non-injury collison – LIVE

Good afternoon,

We wanted to make you and your parish aware of two updates made to the Kent Police website recently.

The public can now report crimes and incidents as well as non-injury road traffic collisions ONLINE directly to us through our website www.kent.police.uk. Once a report is made to us online, the user will receive a unique reference number and a return email confirming receipt.

We 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 us 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).

Please feel free to promote this new option of contacting Kent Police with your wider parish.

Kind regards
Helen Marshall

Digital Manager
Kent Police
