Embarrasing with the Norwegian Police website…


The Norwegian Police are limping after web 2.0 and finally made a website where you can report a crime (only if your wallet, bicycle or mobile phone is stolen). The only stupid thing is that it results in an e-mail sent to another system. But hey, they promise to send a letter in your (snail) mail within 14 days after the report. Great promise when you know only 3% of bicycle thefts are solved.

I think it is great that the police are trying to make it easier for you and me. The only problem is when they also make it easy for the bad guys. The Norwegian police is using the URL to point to graphics and then it is open for you and me to write whatever we want ourselves… great… no wonder this hits the front page on the largest tabloid newspaper (Link in Norwegian).
