4:43 pm on 19 June 2012

Police have launched a wanted persons website in the hope people will help them track down suspected offenders.

Officers in Wellington and Eastern Districts are the first to use the site, which currently features 31 wanted people.

Individuals posted on the website are either wanted on criminal charges, or need to be identified as a suspect or witness to a crime.

The website is www.police.govt.nz/wanteds
