The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We have plans in place for a new website to improve user experience for everyone visiting and accessing information. Please bear with us.

 

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website and realise we have some work to do.

We are in the process of tendering for a new website, which we expect to be up and running by Autumn 2020.

This will be fully complaint with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

We are taking steps to ensure our current website complies with all guidance where possible.

However, the cost of fixing some issues concerning navigation, accessing information and interactive tools will be a disproportionate cost burden whilst also building a new website.

Please visit AbilityNet for more advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Thank you for your patience.

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
