Keeping up with what is going on in our local area can be a challenge and some things are more important to us than others. Crime is something we may be unfortunate enough to have to report sometimes, but it can also be useful to be alerted to policing issues.
Helpfully, West Yorkshire Police have launched a new messenger system “West Yorkshire Community Alert” which will enable members of the public to keep in touch with local police updates.
Registration is free and you can choose to receive news and appeals, local crime information and prevention advice direct via email, text or voice message.
You can also sign up for local updates from their Neighbourhood Policing Team or Neighbourhood Watch contacts, or join a number of specialised community interest groups such as business watch, dog walkers, motorists or crime prevention etc.
