The next time you’re in London and witness something that isn’t quite right (perhaps a Chav stealing a bottle of Buckfast Tonic Wine at the local offie) don’t be shy – hit up the Metropolitan Police Service and report what you’re seeing via SMS. All you need to do is send your location, what you saw and your name to 07940 500 500.  Okay, so the service was created with those who are hard of hearing or have a speech impediment in mind, but that’s not to say those without the aforementioned conditions can’t report a crime via SMS. You’d not only be doing your civic duty by reporting a crime in progress but you’d also be saving your precious talk time minutes.
