Online crime reporting and non-injury collison

Two updates have been made to the Kent Police website.

The public can now report crimes and incidents as well as non-injury road traffic collisions ONLINE directly to us through their 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.

Kent Police 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).

In an emergency it is important to call 999
