Police have launched a new website which they say will change the way they communicate with people.
Key features include non emergency crime reporting and chat pages, a postcode search for information, an A-Z area of crime prevention advice and an easier search bar.
Chief Constable Alec Wood said: “It’s great to see the force moving in line with the modern world. The new site will help us communicate and engage with the public in a modern and effective way and accommodate those who prefer to self-serve and interact with us online rather than via 101.
“The website is still a work in progress and will continue to be developed but I hope you find it useful and please feel free to take a look and let us know what you think by completing our short feedback form.”
Web Project Lead, superintendent Nick Lyall said: “We’re excited to have launched the new website and encourage you to take a look.
“The new and improved site aims to help the people of Cambridgeshire easily access information and carry out a range of activities online, 24/7.
“Our non-emergency online forms and web-chat service aims to reduce the need for people to call 101, leaving our call handlers with more time to deal with matters that can’t be handled online.

“We’ve also worked to ensure the websites are more accessible and user-friendly with updated and refreshed content readily available throughout.”
Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite said: “It’s important the Constabulary is as accessible and available to the public as possible and I’m glad to see the new website offers some fantastic online facilities to help achieve this.”
