New po­lice web­site for dash­cams

Ashbourne News Telegraph - - NEWS -

A NEW web­site which al­lows you to send dash­cam footage to po­lice has been launched in Der­byshire.

Der­byshire Cap­ture ac­cepts dig­i­tal video clips or still images of road traf­fic in­ci­dents.

Footage will only be in­ves­ti­gated if it is less than 10 days old and you must be will­ing to make a state­ment about the in­ci­dent.

As­sis­tant Chief Con­sta­ble Kem Mehmet said, be­cause of­fi­cers will have to at­tend less ap­point­ments to view dash­cam footage, po­lice will be able to spend more time on the streets.

He said: “This new sys­tem will pro­vide a quick and easy way for the pub­lic to sub­mit footage to us.

“So many driv­ers and road users now have dash­cams or other video record­ing de­vices which cap­ture footage that may be of use to us when in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent.”

The web­site is https://snap. der­byshire.po­lice.uk

Cy­clists who be­lieve they have been a vic­tim of an of­fence, in­clud­ing a “close pass”, can also sub­mit footage. Driv­ers who be­lieve they have footage of a cy­clist com­mit­ting an of­fence can sub­mit it, too.
