Report Crime In Devon By Text

A new reporting system where we text the police is starting in Devon and Cornwall

It's very similar to the SMS one we currently have for people with hearing difficulties.

A new online reporting system has already just started here.

Juliette Pryce manages our police contact centre, she says it will be much more convenient for us, "This isn't going to be in the next 6 months but we are looking and hoping to get it online as soon as we can. The problems are technical, when they're resolved we will be able to go live."

"We have been looking into the availability of SMS so people can actually text message us rather than use a telephone. It's another area where people can easily contact us on any medium that suits them."
