Newham police launch
Newham Borough Police is the
latest Metropolitan Police borough to launch an innovative
community messaging service to provide the public with news and
information from their local police.
Called Neighbourhood Link, it is a free service that
enables local residents, businesses and those who work in the
borough to regularly receive information from the police.
Those signing up to Neighbourhood Link will receive emails and
text messages about crime and safety in the areas they sign up
Through Neighbourhood Link, Safer Neighbourhoods Teams will keep
recipients updated with local police activity, crime prevention
advice and what they are doing to address community concerns and
make Newham borough one of the safest boroughs in London.
Chief Inspector Guy Wade, Newham Safer Neighbourhoods said: "I'm
delighted to launch Neighbourhood Link in Newham borough"
"Feedback from other boroughs using Neighbourhood Link has been
extremely positive and I would encourage anyone living, working or
visiting Newham Borough to sign up to Neighbourhood Link and
receive information about local police activity and what we are
doing to address community concerns."
Neighbourhood Link will also be used by other Metropolitan Police
Service (MPS) units to keep recipients informed in the event of a
major incident impacting on London.
In order to receive messages, individuals will need to register
their details. Registering is free of charge and will enable the
police to send messages relevant to the areas where they live and
