The project has made policing easy to access for users across the state. It has also helped the NSW Police Force engage with the community.
Launched in 2016, the portal has transformed over time. With improved digital services customers can report online a wider variety of minor crime categories. The portal also contains a Help Centre and Live Chat support.
Reports can be made about:
- lost property
- intentional damage
- minor traffic crashes.
Customers can also apply for firearms, licences and permits, National Police Check, insurance related police event reports and access other NSW Police Force information.
Customers can save partially completed reports and return them in their own time. The portal also enables customers to update footage and imagery when submitting their report. Customers are provided with a reference number they can use to commence insurance claims or check the status of their report.
The next phase of the portal will add further crime types and additional services through the portal. This includes sexual assault reporting options, Form 1 (Notice of Public Assembly) and Victim Service Right to Information Policy. The latest version of the portal also brings Crime Stoppers into the portal, utilising the same user-friendly interface, interactive guides and ease of use.
