West Yorkshire Police has launched a brand new messenger system “West Yorkshire Community Alert” which enables members of the public to keep in touch with local police updates.
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 system went live on Wednesday, May 1, and a number of authors throughout the Force have already been trained up on how to circulate messages.
Officers and staff are being asked to help promote the service to our local communities, and encourage people to sign up. There will also be a campaign on social media.
To sign up for local updates from your Neighbourhood Policing Team or Neighbourhood Watch contacts, please visit: www.wypcommunityalert.co.uk. From that site you can also join a number of specialised community interest groups such as business watch, dog walkers, motorists or crime prevention etc.
Remember, your personal data is absolutely safe, it’s strictly controlled and the system is fully GDPR compliant. We don’t share your email address and other info. Registration is free and it only takes seconds to sign up.
