Wiltshire Police, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Wiltshire and Swindon and Wiltshire & Swindon Neighbourhood Watch Association are working together on this new two-way Community Messaging tool.
By joining Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging, you can participate in the exchange of information with Wiltshire Police, Neighbourhood Watch and potentially in the future other voluntary watch schemes and public sector agencies.
When signing-up for Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging you choose how you wish to receive information – by email, text or voicemail.
You can also choose the organisations you get information from, how regularly you receive messages and the type of information you receive. You can change your preferences anytime by logging-in to your account.
Examples of messages that you may receive include community policing news and events, details of area crime trends, appeals for information, crime prevention advice and outcomes of court cases relating to incidents in your area.
You can use Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging to respond to messages, feeding back information to your local neighbourhood officers to help them in policing your local area.
When signing up for Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging, you can also choose to join like-minded people by becoming part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your area or request to start a new one.
Joining Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging is quick, simple and free. There are no contracts, costs or obligations of any kind for members of the public signing up.
You are only asked to verify that some basic contact details are correct before you start receiving messages. Once you have verified your account by responding to an email, you will be ready to receive messages from us.
Your personal details entered during the sign-up process will be securely held under the provisions of the Data Protection Act and only the organisations you choose to see your details can see them. Your information will not be shared with anyone other than Community Messaging administrators.
Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging is being commissioned by the PCC in line with his priorities in the Police and Crime Plan and commitment to involving communities and volunteers in the reduction and prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour.
