'Low-level' crimes could soon be reported online

REPORTING crime in NSW could soon be done via text or online.

NSW Police are inviting residents to have their say about a proposed system which would allow non-life-threatening crimes to be reported on a special website.

Users will be able to register and create their own account to interact with police and track the progress of reported crimes.

The site is geared at taking pressure off the Crime Stoppers reporting line and opening up an alternative communication channel between police and the community.

Strict guidelines will be introduced for the types of "low-level" crimes that can be reported in the new format.

Policing Program Director, Superintendent Keith Willott, said a community portal survey had been set up so people in NSW could have the chance to help develop the site.

He said feedback would be taken into account before the site went "live".

The survey can be found at
