UK Police to test out virtual police stations

In an attempt to provide more access to police officers, officials in Mumbles, south Wales, have installed a kiosk system that provides users with the ability to videoconference with live officers at a manned central station.

Here's a snippet from one article:

"The virtual station is monitored by CCTV, which South Wales Police say is designed to protect anyone who considers themselves to be in danger while officers are en route. People visiting the station out-of-hours will also be able to report lost and found property, email their local community officer and access the force's website."
