Message from Nottinghamshire Police - Neighbourhood Alert

Rural communities are being encouraged to form a united front against crime – by signing up to a new local email alert system.

In response to local feedback, Nottinghamshire Police is adopting a bespoke rural Neighbourhood Alert email platform, which sends regular warnings about the latest offences and emerging criminal trends.

We are encouraging residents, farmers and other business owners to learn more about what is happening in their area by signing up for updates.

The software, already used by thousands of people in the county, provides hyper-local, street-level updates to residents about what is happening in their area.

I am asking as many people as possible to sign up as we will be using the system as our main method of sending updates.

Can I also urge residents to continue to immediately report all offences and suspicious activity by phone or on-line in order to build up a clearer local picture about current activities and trends.

For example, if you are a farmer who uses a quadbike for work and a similar devices has been stolen from another farm nearby, we'll issue a bespoke warning to you so you can safeguard your investment.

All you need to do is sign up to Neighbourhood Alerts using the link below and ensure you have selected "rural matters" in the dropdown menu for specific trend updates.

"If you are already registered, you can also select specific trend updates you want to see by clicking on the 'messages' option and selecting 'which type of messages'."
