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.


Reporting security concerns

Representatives of the Association met recently with our local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) to share concerns about security at Hebble Wharf. npt

We have made Police aware of recent incidents of intruders in the refuse store and the electrical room, and unauthorised access to the car park.  Wakefield Police have asked that anyone noticing anything suspicious in or around Hebble Wharf should report it to the Local Neighbourhood Policing Team without delay.

The email address for the local neighbourhood policing team is: wakefield.central@westyorkshire.pnn.police.uk. Any photographs you may have to support your report should be sent as attachments. It would be helpful if you could also copy your report to the Association at hebblewharfresidents@gmail.com

Meanwhile, the Association is continuing to press for installation of a CCTV security system in the basement of the building. Following discussions with our Managing Agents, quotations have been invited for a suitable system for installation in appropriate locations.
