Parking enforcement. Police set up a new on line contact

Cambridgeshire Constabulary has launched a new parking initiative.

Residents are now able to report parking enforcement issues using the link below. Chief Inspector Sutherland said: “The information that you give us will go directly to me and will help me build up a picture of the exact hot-spots for parking issues. I have set up an online web-page were you can report concerns about parking.  The information that you give us will go directly to me and will help me build up a picture of the exact hot-spots for parking issues.  I will then use this information on targeted ‘crack-down’ days.  There is some good evidence that crackdown days work in other areas of policing so we are going to try it for parking.  For obvious reasons I won’t be publicising the dates of the crackdowns in advance but I will update you by e-cops, twitter and face-book once we have completed a crackdown day and what we found.” ​

The web page is live right now and you can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/SouthCambs-Parking.  Inspector Sutherland is not pretending that this will solve all parking problems, however he believes that it strikes the right balance between dealing with parking concerns and the other important work that the police do.
