Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk of is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

Some older news stories may not have suitable alt attributes applied to images.

Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.

Disproportionate burden

 Not applicable. We are not claiming that any of our accessibility issues are disproportionate to fix.

Embedded content

Where we embed third party content such as YouTube videos and Google Maps, we rely on software hosted through third-parties and this may come with accessibility issues, for example YouTube does not include a title attribute on its iframe code. We’ve assessed the cost of development to address this and believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. 

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

What are we doing to improve accessibility?

We are now conducting a website content review, which will be complete by Summer 2023.  The scope of the review will include the requirement to publish information, the status and accessibility of news stories, PDFs and Word documents and fixing them if required.

By Summer 2023, all historic documents (subject to the outcome of the Disproportionate Burden Assessment) will be accessible.

We are committed to ensuring any new PDFs or Word documents we publish meet accessibility standards and have put in place plans to meet this commitment.

When we identify or are notified that a document does not meet accessibility guidelines, we will offer an accessible version as quickly as we can.
