Accessibility

This website is run by The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC).

We want as many people as possible to be able to find it, read it and understand it. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

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').

Technical information about this website's accessibility

We are committed to making our website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

 

Compliance status

We are currently looking in to our compliance with our website provider, and aiming for full compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AAA standard.

 

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs that are not essential to providing our services were published before 23 September 2018. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before then. 

We are working hard to make sure any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards. Some PDFs on our website, that came from other sources generated and owned by our partners and stakeholders, may not yet be fully accessible. When we identify a document that does meet accessibility guidelines, we will offer a clearly labelled accessible version as quickly as we can.

If you identify a document that is not accessible, or you need information in an alternative format such as braille or a language other than English please contact the Communications Management Team on enquiries@apccs.police.uk

 

Preparation of this website's accessibility statement

We use Acrobat Pro and WAVE software to check compliance with accessibility standards.

This statement was prepared on 22nd of September 2020.
