Nottinghamshire Alert is a messaging system that allows Nottinghamshire Police, Trading Standards and Neighbourhood Watch together with other public organisations to distribute messages concerning community safety to members of the public quickly and efficiently. Register online at https://www.nottinghamshirealert.co.uk/ Go to our Law & Order > Neighbourhood Alert section for more information and details of how to join this important service.
The Alert system is particularly useful for warning of outbreaks of vehicle-related crime (be it theft, vandalism or anything else). Our community is semi-rural which means that it is quite a popular target for thieves looking for out-of-the-way situations, so being aware of their activity nearby is powerful information for taking care of our own. Recent outbreaks of vehicle-related crime was extremely useful information for those of us linked to Neighbourhood Alert. Itís simple (and free) to join, so why not enrol today?
