Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert
Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert is a free community messaging system facilitated by Northamptonshire Police.
Why should people sign up?
Our communities play a crucial part in helping us prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour. Working together, we can make Northamptonshire a safer place to live and work. By signing up to Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert, members will receive messages about crime, witness appeals and general policing activity in their designated area, meaning they can better protect themselves from any issues that may arise. They can also be kept informed about what their local policing team is up to, including public events and meetings they are attending.
What happens when someone signs up?
Signing up to Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert is free, quick and simple. The individual will be given the option of what they want to receive alerts about, and how often. Alerts are then sent by email. It’s simple to use and they will only receive messages about topics that they have pre-selected. Members can change their preferences or stop receiving messages at any time.
What sort of alerts will members receive?
The types of messages received depends on the categories selected. For example, if someone chooses ‘Farm and Rural Watch’ as an area of interest, they will receive information relevant to this area. Members can pick multiple areas of interest, such as business, vehicles, animals and more, as well as different areas of the county that they have an interest in. Alerts are posted directly by Northamptonshire Police and other partner organisations, such as Neighbourhood Watch groups, to keep members informed about what is happening in their area, helping us all to work together to make Northamptonshire safer.
