About Police Witness
Driving standards in the UK are appalling - Anti-social behaviour is rife - And where is a cop when you need one?
But moaning about the police, or lack of police is pointless, so let’s help them. Let’s provide them with the evidence they need, because a policeman with no evidence is merely a clerk, completing paperwork for bureaucracy’s sake.
With tens of thousands of people filming their journeys with in-car cameras also known as dash cams, cycle and helmet cams – members of public, just like you, can bring those who flout the law to the attention of the police and the courts. So don’t let the red mist and the behaviour of those ‘challenged’ individuals spoil your day – smile, knowing they’ve been caught on video and when you get home you’re going to report them! Click ‘read more’ for a great example that landed a driver in court, disqualified from driving for a year!...Read More
A driver appears in court charged with dangerous driving – the result of the police? No, this prosecution follows the actions of a member of public so fed up with the appalling standards of driving he installed a low cost commonly known as an ‘in-car camera or dash cam' in his car.
The incident was captured by a Milton Keynes Police Witness, who as we say is just a normal member of public like you, as he drove on the A508 towards Northampton. The accused driver carried out an overtake manoeuvre, during which the vehicle was driven on the wrong side of central bollards, designed to keep traffic left, whilst crossing solid white lines on the approach to a bend! As a result of video evidence captured on an in-car camera / dash cam and with the support of PoliceWitness.com and Northants Police the driver was found guilty of dangerous driving in March 2013 at Northampton Magistrates Court. The driver has been disqualified for 12 months.
This is a huge landmark, it is unprecedented. For a member of the public to bring a successful prosecution is a huge accomplishment. As there are fewer and fewer police officers on our streets this just goes to show that you, or I, can make a difference.
Again we emphasise, this follows the actions of a normal member of public, just like you. He had no special training, none was needed - he merely decided that the standard of driving he witnessed was so poor he wanted to be able to record it and report it.
We, the public, need to play our role in policing our roads and communities. Not in terms of patrolling the streets, but ensuring that our families are protected in the event we become a victim of dangerous driving, assault, robbery or even bullying.
PoliceWitness.com provides a comprehensive solution to achieve this, mindful of the Home Offices’ objectives to promote community policing. PoliceWitness.com provides an easy and effective way to report the incidents that our members capture on video, incidents that historically the police would have been unable, or unwilling to act upon....Read More
Tackling Crime Together - The Home Office through elected Police & Crime Commissioners aim to promote active community policing, where normal citizens, community activists and social enterprise are encouraged to assist Police to help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour in your communities. In a Home Office document called ‘Reconnecting Police and the People – The Home Secretary, Theresa May, states Public Co-operation – not just passive consent – is essential for the police to do their job. She states she wants to restore confidence in policing so more people get involved.
As Sir Robert Peel once said “the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen…”
So what is a Police Witness? A Police Witness is merely a member of public who has decided to video the things that they see, and who want to see justice happen.
Becoming a Police Witness provides you with a new found confidence, safe in the knowledge that you and your family are protected from both the innocent accident and those who seek to do others wrong.
But road related incidents, in-car cameras, dash cams and cycle cams are just the start... yobs, hoodies, mis-guided youths, or whatever term they prefer, should beware! In the months to come we will tackle anti-social behaviour, distraction burglaries, robberies, assaults and even bullying through the use of technology. Our approach will shock human rights campaigners, but will leave people and communities safer than they have ever been! With many 'challenged' individuals, who claim their behaviour is the result of a lack of opportunities, left for the courts to deal with! Click the Personal Camera Icon below for more information.
How does it work? - PoliceWitness.com has extensive experience of both front line and strategic policing. With this in-depth knowledge we represent our members when seeking justice, or indeed just proving to your insurer that a genuine collision was not your fault, speeding up claims and ensuring you keep your no claims discount and excess.
PoliceWitness.com liaises directly with the Police on your behalf in a format they know and can act upon, usually through a specific department. In the absence of a specific contact, the Chief Constable will be made aware directly, ensuring you receive a full, professional and courteous service, meaning more chance of justice for you and safer roads and communities for us all....Read More
Our primary purpose is to provide the Police with high quality video evidence, which clearly shows in high definition the behaviour of others - behaviour that has concerned or alarmed you. Through the use of an in-car camera also known as a dash cam, helmet or cycle cam, mobile phone or similar... you are not only able to capture independent evidence of offences; you also protect you, your family, your insurance premiums, not to mention your property. As has been widely reported by the media, 'Crash for Cash' scams are a growing insurance fraud, a problem costing the industry, or should we say us, £500m a year.
So Why the Need?
When you dial 999 to report a menace on the road, regrettably it is often the case that no police resource is assigned to your complaint due to the lack of evidence, i.e. it’s your word against the other driver. This results in no further action being taken and the offending driver not even being stopped or spoken to. We know this infuriates those of you who drive with care and consideration and would like to see more done to combat those who put our lives at risk.
This unfortunately is not going to change with Police resource already stretched. It is for this reason that we must all help the police by providing independent evidence they can act upon. With thousands of motorists already protected by in-car cameras/dash cams, it is very clear that the public are not about to sit idly by and become victims of anti-social driving and behaviour.
Enjoy new levels of confidence, knowing you will never be a victim again.
Film and report those who flout the law and mindlessly put you and your family at risk.
Whether you walk, drive or cycle... absolutely anyone can be a Police Witness, even you.
