Do you have a dash cam?

Chief Inspector Andrew Hall, Head of Road Policing  for Nottinghamshire, explains our process in dealing with the footage you may have.

"Most people will say they have witnessed some sort of offence being committed when they are driving around, from speeding to using a mobile phone.

"Fortunately, most people just see the incidents and are not impacted by them. However, sometimes you may think that the person’s behaviour needs to be reported to the police.

"If you've caught what you believe to be an offence on your dash cam and have been personally affected by that behaviour please ask yourself 'what could the police do?'”

To understand what we can do and what we need from you visit the dash cam footage page.

"We really value your input into helping us keep the roads safe and assisting us targeting dangerous drivers and poor driving behaviour as we can’t do it alone.

“By proactively patrolling and performing targeted operations we influence driver behaviour and prosecute many drivers for varied offences on our county's roads.

"With the growth of web cams, dash cams, head cams, dog cams and any many more we need to consider and ensure we are using our limited resources wisely. If we prepare the footage for prosecution, which can take a long time, we need to ensure we are doing it for the right reasons. Unfortunately we can't prosecute everything, as I'm sure you'll understand.”

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
