West Yorkshire Police has launched a new and updated version of the messenger system “West Yorkshire Community Alert“.
Community Alert, is a system West Yorkshire Police has been using since 2019, allowing officers across the county to update the public direct with news, updates and appeals on matters that are happening on their doorstep.
This new Community Alert has also been updated to include a range of new benefits, such as the ability for officers to send hyper-localised messages to the public by drawing round a particular area or postcode.
Public registration is free, and people can choose to receive news and appeals, local crime information and/or prevention advice direct via email, text or voice message.
The public can sign up for local updates from their NPT or Neighbourhood Watch contacts, or join a number of specialised community interest groups such as business watch, dog walkers, motorists or crime prevention etc.
