18/01/2020: Please note that we are currently experiencing technical difficulties in relation to our online contacting service. If you need to report a crime urgently, please contact an operator in the Force Communications Room via online web chat or by calling 101. Always dial 999 in an emergency. We are working to resolve the issue and will provide an update as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Web chat is 24 hour service and can be accessed by clicking the green icon displayed at the bottom right of the screen throughout our website. It also works on mobile devices and tablets.
It is a great service to use if you are hard of sight or sound or if you are in an environment or situation where you may not be able to talk freely on the telephone. You can start talking to a police operator now via our web chat service.
You can keep up-to-date with all of the latest news from around the county and your district by downloading our Hertfordshire Constabulary mobile app.
As well as being able to locate your nearest police station or who your local officers are, you can also report crime and live chat with police operators on the go.
(Please note that whilst our new website has just launched you may experience some issues with some of the app's features initially but we hope to get this smoothed out very soon.)
Our app is available for download today on both Android®and iPhone®
