How we serve you:
Protecting you and your family
Accidents happen, no matter how safely you drive. Whether you are a private individual or run a fleet
of vehicles, unfortunately not everyone drives to the same standard. In the event of a collision that is somebody else’s fault, an in-car video camera or 'dash cam' will mean no more waiting months for the insurance companies to agree who was responsible, normally because the other driver has subsequently denied liability. The video evidence will speak for itself. PoliceWitness.com aims to protect you and your family from the perils of dangerous driving and the more recent danger of ‘crash for cash’ insurance scams, widely reported in the media.
Armed with your video evidence, we liaise on your behalf with the authorities and insurance companies to ensure early and maximum settlement of your claim, protecting not just your no claims discount, but your future premiums too. With your help, we can provide solid evidence that you were driving entirely appropriately, due to the video evidence captured on your in-car DVR. The public, through PoliceWitness.com will in essence become the additional eyes and ears of the police service itself by capturing evidence of driving offences and criminality on the roads, including when you are directly affected by a genuine collision.
Saving you money
With an approved in-car Digital Video Recorder or ‘Black box’ (DVR) camera installed in your vehicle, we can act on your behalf to secure significant discounts on your car insurance, because we can prove that you drive responsibly and within the law. This means that your DVR ‘Black Box’ starts paying you back from the start. Go to our Insurance section for more details.
Making our roads safer
We liaise with every police service in the country to ensure that the evidence you capture on your in-car DVR also known as a dash cam, can result in the best possible action being taken by the authorities. Reporting what you have seen on the roads rarely leads to anything. However, when supported by footage taken using a high quality in-car video recorder or dash cam, the process can be simple.
When you Report an Incident to us, we guide you in the best way to save and present your video evidence. We then approach our dedicated contact in each police force area and secure the best possible outcome to achieve real Justice.
Help and advice
We provide help and advice on a number of related matters and, through our close links with other agencies supporting road safety, can get you the right advice that you need.
With more and more people complaining that the police are not listening and responding properly to their complaints, PoliceWitness.com has launched The Police Complaints Advocacy Service, a free service, even to non members. As with any service business, if you want a proper outcome to your complaint it needs to be heard by the person at the top.This is true with the police service, the chief officers need to be made aware. Using our knowledge, persistence and where necessary, our legal team we take your complaint to the top. If you have a complaint you may even be entitled to compensation. Click here to make a complaint
