Easy Communication with the Police
WE LIAISE WITH THE POLICE FOR YOU
PoliceWitness.com liaises with every police force in the country, meaning no matter where the incident happened, we have it covered. Our reporting process was designed in collaboration with the Met, meaning the police receive reports in a format they know and can act upon.

Through our in-depth knowledge of the police service, and the Crown Prosecution Service, we help to secure the very best possible outcome of each incident you report through PoliceWitness.com. Our track record of success is evident with fines and points issued, through to driver disqualification and driving re-training. In October 2015 a driver was even imprisoned as a result of our efforts to hold dangerous drivers to account. (A 24 year male was sentenced to 8 months in prison and banned from driving for 28 months after admitting dangerous driving)
