Ask the Police


'Ask the Police' is an online information resource of Q&As that respond to a wide variety of the general public's most frequently asked policing questions.

The website provides links to relevant national organisations and also includes the facility to rate the answer and e-mail a specific question directly, which will be answered within 24 working hours.

It includes answers to popular questions such as:

  • "I have got a speeding ticket and I want to see the photographic evidence, can I?"
  • "What is battery?"
  • "I have been burgled, is there anything I can do, with regards to evidence, before the police arrive?"

If you have a general question about the law or policing, visit the Ask the Police website.

Do you need a quick answer to a general question? Then we recommend you visit the national Ask The Police web site.
