There are currently about 20 images on the site, all from Norwich incidents and some dating back to November last year.
They include a young woman with long brown hair at the Co-Op on Catton Grove Road,
a man in a distinctive pale
grey hoodie and black gloves looking directly at the camera
in HMV on Gentleman's Walk
and a shaven-headed man listening to headphones in a convenience store on Unthank Road.
Suspects are also pictured at the city's Job Centre, outside City College, at various petrol stations and a betting shop.
Fresh pictures will be uploaded from around the county - or from around the UK if a suspect is connected to Norfolk - as and when the public's help is needed and will remain on the site for up to a month.
Each image can be enlarged and includes information on the date, time and location of the incident and the number of people involved.
Reports to the police can be made on-line or by phoning 0845 456 4567.
