As a way of improving the accessibility of our services to the public, Norfolk Constabulary have created a number of Information Points situated in rural Post Office branches and council information centres across Norfolk including one in Sheringham located at Sheringham Plus, 3, Station Road, Sheringham.

We have 13 information points located in rural Post Offices and 7 Council information centres.  Local officers and police community support officers call into the information points twice a week as part of their core patrol duties, to meet post office staff and public to offer support and advice.   In addition, officers working in public enquiry offices in police stations are available to provide advice by telephone or personal visits to answer any queries post office staff may have.  A number of activities are undertaken on behalf of the Constabulary at these information points such as:

* reporting malicious telephone calls
* reporting an incident
* reporting a crime
* obtaining firearm/shotgun applications and making submissions
* obtaining data protection applications and making submissions
* handing in and recording found property
* recording lost property
* checking/recording of driving documents
* displaying of police information leaflets

Norfolk Constabulary has also introduced six internet kiosks across the county which enable users to email the Force, search the Constabulary website for information, provide a facility to report crime, to make contact with specific officers and provide a link with the Contact and Dispatch Centre for assistance and emergency calls.  The kiosks also enable the Norfolk Constabulary to advertise current campaigns, and seek assistance from the public for incidents such as missing persons and local crime.  It's the Constabulary's intention to extend this facility across other parts of the county.   The machines are supplied by DVE.
