Share by emailShare by email

Nottinghamshire Police is committed to making its website accessible to all its users, complying with industry standards and best practice to ensure that our site is as easy-to-use as possible and is accessible for everyone in our community.

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is defined as the ability of people with disabilities and other requirements to perceive, understand, navigate and interact with websites by:

  • Navigating the site easily to find the information they require
  • Accessing images, video and sound content via text only alternatives
  • Completing and submitting web forms

Making our website accessible

The Nottinghamshire Police website is designed to comply with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) 'Web Accessibility Initiative's Double-A' standard as a minimum, meaning the site should be compatible with all main screen readers, screen magnifiers and other assistive technologies.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible.

  • Some parts of the forms (such as checkboxes, radio controls, list boxes and combination boxes) for reporting crimes, traffic incidents and anti-social behaviour may be difficult to use with keyboard navigation, screen readers such as JAWS and voice command software such as Dragon
  • Most older PDF documents aren’t fully accessible to screen readers, however users can request accessible versions
  • Some content on our website is not available unless JavaScript is enabled, for example forms and maps

Report a concern

If you have any concerns or are having difficult accessing any element of the Nottinghamshire Police website, please call the Force’s Corporate Communication team on 101 extension 800 2077 or email website@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk
