Help Hertfordshire Constabulary fight crime by downloading a new mobile phone app.

Facewatch ID offers the user the ability to scroll through photographs and identify people that the police would like to speak to in relation to crimes or as witnesses or victims.

Users can input their location and scroll through a gallery of images, filling out the online form if they recognise an individual.

Chief Constable Andy Bliss said: “We are committed to making Hertfordshire a safe place for people to live and Facewatch ID provides yet another way for us to achieve that. We are keen to utilise technology to tackle criminals and the community can now help us to do that with this pioneering app.

“I would urge the people of Hertfordshire to download the app and to help us to continue to maintain Hertfordshire as one of the safest places to live in the country.”

It is hoped that the app, which is simple to use and will available for free on both Apple and Android devices, will be extremely effective.

Richard Thompson, CEO at Facewatch, added: “We are delighted that Hertfordshire Constabulary is using Facewatch ID to identify people the police want to speak to in the county. The app is an ideal tool to involve members of the public and ask for their valuable knowledge to help the police solve crimes.

“We have seen some impressive results so far and we’re really looking forward to the force using the app as part of their investigations.”

To download the app to your smart phone or tablet, just search your app store for Facewatch ID or download it through the Facewatch website.
