Great way to keep up to date with crime in your area.
This looks like a very useful service although you will have to give you details, address, tel. number etc. The website states the following:
Thames Valley Police are committed to involving the community in the policing of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Milton Keynes. We believe that by improving the flow of information between the community and its police we can all make a greater impact in the prevention and detection of crime and anti social behaviour.
This site provides an invitation for you to participate in the exchange of information with Thames Valley Police, Neighbourhood Watch and other community groups. You do not need to join a specific watch scheme but you may find that there are like minded residents or businesses in your area who would welcome your support.
If you live or work in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire or Milton Keynes, you are invited to register now to become a registered recipient of messages of information, crime alerts or witness appeals local to the area in which you live or work in a way that suits your needs and lifestyle by email, text or telephone. Register now to Thames Valley Alert.
As a registered recipient you will not only benefit from two way messaging but may also learn about those in your community subject of anti social behaviour orders, help identify suspected or wanted criminals from the Gallery pages or learn about community groups, events or meetings in your area.
Please note: This service is not monitored out of office hours and is not for reporting crimes or incidents. To report these please contact Thames Valley Police on 101.
It’s worth noting that this is not an anonymous system and in order to verify your registration they will require your full name and correct location.
And whilst on the subject, who remembers this PC?
