Our web accessibility principles

We want visitors to the Sussex Police website to be able to contact and engage with us through the site regardless of their ability, age, language or background.

This page explains the web accessibility principles we aim for. If you're looking for practical help in using this site, visit our site help.

Who do you consider when you create content for the site?

Whenever we create content for our site we consider the needs of:

  • People with visual or hearing impairments
  • People with reading difficulties such as dyslexia
  • People whose mother tongue is not English
  • People from different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds
  • People from different generations.

What sort of practical help do you offer to users?

There are a number of ways in which we support the site's users:

  • Providing text-based help with using the site: offering help and advice to guide users in making the most of our site and customising their computers.
  • Giving real-time help to users: by using the Live Help function (available during working hours) users can ask for online help from a member of our contact team. Our staff will guide them to the information they need within the site.
  • Designing our site for use with assistive technologies: checking that our media work well with technologies such as software that reads pages aloud.
  • Following standards: the website should follow accessibility standards in subject matter, writing style, design and coding. These standards include the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.
  • Innovating: looking for new ways of offering media in an accessible way to help the communities of Sussex and beyond to engage with us.

How do you make sure the site overall is easy to use?

We ensure the site is useable in the following ways:

  • Helping users to control the size of text using their browser settings.
  • Using a font which is easy to read.
  • Ensuring there is a suitable colour contrast between the foreground and the background of each page.
  • Using clear and simple grammar.
  • Describing each picture and photo used on the site in words too.
  • Providing simple, consistent site navigation.
  • Ensuring the target (or destination) for each link is described.
  • Providing an easy to use site map.
  • Providing navigational shortcuts for users of text only browsers and page readers.
  • Using the best technology possible to display the site on different devices.

How can I tell you if I have problems with the site?

We test the content and functions of our site to make sure that a range of users can access the information they need.

In addition, we welcome your feedback about your experience of the site and we will try hard to solve problems as we become aware of them.

Let us know if there are things you find difficult, if you have problems with a particular page or if you have constructive feedback. Use our website feedback form to tell us your comments.

Where can I find out more?

Your local Disability Engagement Officer (DEO) can help. You can contact them via our Help Centre.

There are many websites which offer more information about making the web easier to use. Some also offer free software to download.
