Staffordshire Police – new Single Online Home website

Dear Residents,

Staffordshire Police have provided the following information to the Parish Council:

On Wednesday 14 August Staffordshire Police will replace its current website with Single Online Home (SOH).

SOH is a new interactive website where members of the public can report non-urgent crime, submit complaints or praise, make requests under the freedom of information act, view local crime statistics and seek advice on a range of crime types and crime prevention methods.

Along with Single Online Home, we also have the ability to allow the communities of Staffordshire to report crime via social media. Our Digital 101 team takes reports of non-urgent crime, seven days a week, 7am – midnight on Facebook and Twitter.

Your Staffordshire Card is ending 31.08.2019

Staffordshire County Council have sent the following information to the Parish Council:


Dear All

You will be aware the “Your Staffordshire Card” scheme for young people is ending on 31 August 2019 and will no longer be accepted for discounted travel on buses following this date.
Like many county councils we face unprecedented financial challenges and made the decision to no longer fund the administration of the scheme as the number of bus journeys has now fallen by 80 per cent since its peak in 2014/15.

This is in part due to the fact that some operators have introduced their own discounted fares and passes. We are encouraging people to check out the best deals with their local bus operator. National Express for example has recently introduced a pass which will be more affordable than the Your Staffordshire Card if used on a regular basis.

More information about the changes can be found on the council’s website.

Kind Regards
Philip Atkins OBE
Staffordshire County Council.
