Free police updates available to Newham folk
Newham police have launched an innovative community messaging service called Neighbourhood Link to provide the public with news and information.
It is a free service enabling residents and businesses to sign up to receive emails and text messages on crime and safety in their area.
Through Neighbourhood Link, Safer Neighbour Team’s will keep recipients updated with police activity, crime prevention advice and what they are doing to address community concerns.
Chief Insp Guy Wade, of Newham Safer Neighbourhoods, said: “Feedback from other boroughs using Neighbourhood Link has been extremely positive and I would encourage anyone living, working or visiting Newham to sign up to Neighbourhood Link and receive information about local police activity and what we are doing to address community concerns.”
The link will be used by other Metropolitan Police Service units to keep people informed of a major incident impacting on London.
