About Ask The Police

'Ask the Police' is an official police resource that provides Q&A's to a wide variety of the general public's most frequently asked policing questions. It offers an alternative online option, reducing calls to the police, freeing up resources and saving money. The website provides links to relevant national organisations PLUS the facility to rate the answer and email a specific question directly which will be answered within 48 working hours by our legal team. Police forces are able to input additional local police information and advice for the benefit of their communities.

Ask the Police website is available to download as an app.

The 'Ask the Police' website was created by PNLD as a result of a thematic inspection of call handling within the police service by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).

The PNLD (Police National Legal Database) is a not for profit business service of the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire. For over 25 years PNLD has been providing up to date, accurate online criminal law information, including legislative guidance, case law and national standard offence wordings to the police service of England and Wales. PNLD subscriptions are available to support all those with an interest in criminal law, for more information please visit
