MUGSHOTS of wanted criminals in Herts can now be viewed online, thanks to a new crime-fighting initiative launched by the police.
Herts Constabulary uploaded more than 100 images of offenders wanted for various crimes to their website this month and are appealing to members of the public to assist in helping locate the individuals.
Detective Superintendent Jerry Tattersal said that publishing the photos are a last resort: "We need the public's help as many of these wanted people have not returned to their home address and cannot be traced. If they are trying to keep a low profile or have moved, we can only find them if the community helps us."
He added: "These people have committed, or are suspected of committing, offences in our country. Most have failed to attend court for the crime for which they have been charged. We will not let offenders get away with their crime."
