With decades of policing experience, both front line and strategic, reported incidents from our members (which are reported through our members area) are reviewed with our members interests our primary focus. With an offence confirmed we identify the relevant police force and seek to liaise with a specific point of contact, whilst ensuring the police have all the relevant information necessary to act and hold the reporting bad driver to account.

Whether you are upset, angry, afraid or apprehensive, PoliceWitness ensures your message is conveyed along with what your expectations are!

All our members receive complimentary support through our Insurance Representation Service. 
 
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. One system and one point of contact, as opposed to thousands of unique reports. 
 
PROSECUTION 
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)

PROVE YOUR GOOD DRIVING 
In the event of a collision, your in-car camera or dashcam will prove you were in the right, meaning your claim is agreed and finalised within a matter of days, not months. 
 
Safer Roads 
 
ROAD RAGE 
Peace of mind, empowerment and security, never be a victim of road rage again, cameras seem to simmer the most angry of individual! 
 
ERADICATE CRASH FOR CASH AND FLASH FOR CASH 
PoliceWitness.com aims to empower 10’s of thousands, if not 100’s of thousands of concerned drivers so that we can eradicate ‘crash for cash’ scams from our streets, meaning the estimated £400 million cost to insurers is not passed onto the general public. If you record your journeys with a discreet and simple to install dash cam and allow PoliceWitness.com to fight your corner, never again will you be a powerless victim of insurance bureaucracy, road rage, or genuine insurance fraud such as Crash for Cash and Flash for Cash. 
 
 
PoliceWitness.com understands the resources and processes of the police and that of the Crown Prosecution Service. 
 
Via a unique network of contacts within the police, we are able to facilitate the supply of ‘prosecution quality’ evidence from our members to the authorities, in a format they recognise and can act upon. 
 
Our reporting format is the result of years of front-line and strategic policing experience, yet more recently has been developed through consultation with the police. 
 
We continually liaise with the police in order to refine our reporting process, ensuring the police obtain the information they need, in a format that does not unnecessarily add to their workload. 
 
Our reporting format supports both formal and informal outcomes, regardless of the prosecution criteria applied in the force area relevant to your incident. 
 
PoliceWitness.com will ensure that your report reaches not only the correct Force area but also the specific contact, with both responsibility and authority to take appropriate action. 
 
We maintain records of outcomes across the country and have regular liaisons with the authorities to ensure that the service, which both we and the police provide  
to you, is as good as it can be. 
 
Conscious of the demands placed upon all of our public services, and especially the police, our service by its very nature, can provide the police with valuable ‘intelligence’ as well as evidence. 
 
We also seek to support the police in managing their workload and priorities, however, and will occasionally provide advice on issues and incidents which may not merit the time and resources they would have to apply. 
 
 
Your Children's Safety 
 
As a parent, or perhaps a bus driver, do you fear for the safety of children on or near our roads? Do you despair at the amount of drivers who do not comply with the 20mph limit around schools, or simply ignore crossing patrols? 
 
Parking around schools has always been a problem, even though almost all of those responsible are parents themselves. Vehicles are left in dangerous and obstructive places, restricting the view of other motorists and making it difficult for children and parents to cross the road safely. 
 
What can be done? 
 
Trying to get anything effective done about individuals, or the issue as a whole, is frustrating and frequently pointless. This is partly because the power to act against offenders rests almost exclusively with the police service and this is just one of many high priority demands upon their time. 
 
But you can help by bringing evidence-based pressure to bear upon Local Authorities who have the power to regulate the highways. 
 
PoliceWitness.com has been established with the primary purpose of supporting and enabling members of the public who want to make a difference in situations, like those described above 
 
 
Why does nothing ever seem to come down in price? 
 
Or, at least, nothing to do with motoring. Fuel is just a ludicrous price, disguised a little by being priced ‘per litre’ – but who amongst us knows how many ‘miles per litre’ they do? Cars are even sold as ‘miles per gallon’ (mpg) and one gallon now costs as much as £7 – and still rising! 
 
Insurance costs have risen across the board faster in the last 2 years than ever before. Many people have suffered increases of more than 40% in that time, and the rest will do so shortly. 
 
And they aren't the only costs! What about ‘wear and tear’, such as tyres, brakes, shock absorbers and all the other bits that seem to go all too regularly. 
 
PoliceWitness.com can help you reduce all of these costs by 20% or even more, and help you to keep them down. And in the course of doing so you can be both public-spirited and enhance your ‘green’ credentials. 
 
We provide advice and support on how your insurance costs can be reduced, or perhaps you just want to understand how you can make savings of up to £600 even if you do only the national average of 12000 miles per year? 
 
PoliceWitness.com can Reduce your Motoring Costs 
 
Following extensive research and testing PoliceWitness.com is now able to supply equipment for any vehicle that will monitor the demands placed upon it by the driver – or any number of drivers. Our tests with this equipment have demonstrated an immediate reduction in fuel consumption of over 20%, with no significant addition to journey times, and at least the same improvement in the life expectancy of tyres and other depreciating parts. But what about insurance? 
 
Cash back / discount on your premium in the event of an accident - In the event of an accident here is how to get cash back with our help, follow our advice: 
 
Don’t tell your insurer that you have an in-car camera also known as a dash cam, report your accident as you normally would. Your insurer will wait for a response from the other the party involved the accident. The other party will be likely to deny liability even though they probably admitted liability to you at the time of the accident. 
 
Insurers tend not go to court, instead they operate a knock-for-knock policy (A knock-for-knock agreement is an agreement between two insurance companies whereby, when both companies' policy-holders incur losses in the same insured event (usually a motor accident), each insurer pays the losses sustained by its own policy-holder regardless of who was responsible). 
 
This may result in you losing your no claims and your premium going up the following year. Here is what we can do; for an example, assume the repairs would cost £2000, we would then represent you and contact you insurer directly, advising that we understand they are about to spend £2000 to have you, their clients car repaired. We would ask if it would be helpful if they had video evidence proving that you, their client is not at fault, saving them the £2000 repair cost. We would then negotiate reduction of next year’s premium or cash back on your behalf. Read more. 
 
Fact: Safe drivers pay less for their insurance... but how do YOU prove that you are a safe driver? 
 
REDUCING YOUR RISK 
 
Good drivers – the careful, considerate and courteous – are put at risk by those who choose to ignore the rules. Good drivers also pay hugely inflated insurance premiums – despite protected ‘No Claims’ bonuses – because of the careless and criminal use of vehicles on the road. 
 
PoliceWitness.com can help to reduce both the physical and the financial risk. The use of an in-car digital video camera also known as a dash cam, of the right specification, will capture not only the rare unfortunate accident but also the collision caused by careless, inconsiderate or downright dangerous driving. 
 
Save your Excess - Not only will PoliceWitness.com potentially reduce your insurance premium, it will save your “excess” if you are not at fault. And that insurance excess - anywhere between £200 and £1000 - is lost by 75% of drivers involved in a collision! You will lose your excess unless there is overwhelming evidence to support you – even when you have driven faultlessly. Even if you don’t lose it, your following year’s premium is weighted. 
 
PoliceWitness.com changes that and will provide overwhelming evidence to support you. Insurance companies can only offer reduced premiums in response to reduced risk. So that’s what we do. 
 
There is no better way to demonstrate reduced risk than through the use of technology, such as an in-car ‘Black Box’, much like a flight recorder. Even the use of just an in-car camera will help insurance companies to help you 
 
Use of the more sophisticated product such as a ‘Black Box’ will allow you to demonstrate consistent safe driving, saving you hundreds, maybe thousands of pounds! 
 
Evidence - PoliceWitness.com provides evidence of prosecution quality and in a format which can be acted upon by the authorities. No longer will you be the helpless victim of bad driving, road rage or abuse. An in-car camera or ‘Black Box’ will provide the evidence to help the police and Crown Prosecution Service make positive prosecution decisions, meaning yet again the ability to prove to insurers that you are a safe driver, keeping your premiums down.
