Welcome to Web Chat, our new way to talk to officers online and ask the questions you want answered!
Web chat sessions are pre-scheduled and run between certain times on certain days. You can see details of forthcoming discussions displayed below.

Web Chat Acceptable Behaviour Policy
The web chat system's main purpose is to provide an easy-to-use channel for discussion between the police and members of the public. Any form of abuse to other members of a webchat discussion, police staff or otherwise will not be tolerated.
A moderator will oversee each discussion. If the moderator believes anyone is behaving in an unacceptable way they will remove him or her from the discussion.
We will endeavour to answer as many questions as we can in the time allotted, but for popular web chats we may have to restrict the questions to one per person to allow as many people the chance to have their say.
