Accessibility

Humberside Police is committed to ensuring its web site pages are as accessible as possible to the whole of the community that we serve. In particular, we recognise the need to take reasonable steps to enable access to our website for those with impaired sight or other disabilities.

Work on making this site more accessible has been influenced by the Guidelines for UK Government Websites, which incorporate support for the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

British Sign Language (BSL) clips

Humberside Police and partner services in the East Riding have launched British Sign Language (BSL) clips to improve access to services for deaf and hearing impaired residents. The innovative BSL clips, which provide an alternative to written information, are a first of their kind in public services and have been produced following ongoing consultation with deaf and hearing impaired residents.

Clips can be viewed via this link [25MB].  Please note that due to the size of the clips file this may take some time to download.  A DVD is also available on request from equalities@eastriding.gov.uk
