This website has lots of varies of things the users can do such as contacting the police, youngster information about drugs etc. This website of the police is very useful as the customer can go to the website and check things or report emergency, non-emergency or any other appropriate incidents. The website has mainly advantages. One advantage is that people who are interested in joining the police force they can contact the police through the website by signing up.

They use telephones to contact the customers about the bank details. They also might use mail merge to send letters to the customers. One main advantage of using the database, Microsoft excel etc is that it makes it simpler and easier for the staff to use the system. One disadvantage of these systems is that if there is a virus or the system broke down all the files and documents will be lost. ATM (Automatic Teller Machines) is located in the bank and just outside the bank. This is a very useful and effective system. One advantage of this system is that it enables the customers to take out their money from their account whenever they please. However, some people don't know how to withdraw their money. One disadvantage of ATM is that it is a major attraction for criminals as they try several methods to withdraw the money from another person's account. They normally steal the credit card from the person and they try to get the pin number from them, they put oil on the keypad before the person types their pin number so that they can see what numbers they press and lately the criminals use a small camera under the machine and track down the pin number. ?? ?? ?? ??
