A NEW audio CD promoting ways to contact the police and report crime is the first piece of work by Cambridgeshire police to contain Braille.
The CD was produced for those who are visually impaired, blind or have trouble reading and gives details of how to contact police, report crime and what neighbourhood policing is about.
Police worked with the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) to create a CD wallet with Braille to help identify what it is.

"The CD gives advice on getting in touch with us along with valuable tips on personal safety.
