West Yorkshire Community Alert

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. 

West Yorkshire Police Crime Prevention Officer Paul Denison said: 

"Community Alert is a fantastic service as it gives the public a simple way of keeping up to date with what we're up to in their local area, especially those who may not have social media.

"It is also an invaluable investigative tool - and can be used to appeal for information or intelligence and help to solve crime.

"It's a great service we can provide to the public as users are able to engage with us and receive real-time updates on issues that are affecting where they live, and they can also choose what updates they'd like to receive on things that matter to them."

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.
