Derbyshire Alert is a free community messaging service that allows Derbyshire police, Neighbourhood Watch and other key partners to distribute messages concerning community safety to the public quickly and effectively. We can keep you informed of local events and crimes in your area, and appeal for any witnesses or information.
Anybody can sign up to the system and receive local information based on their postcode. Alerts are mainly sent by email, but people can also choose to receive them via text or a voice message at a time that suits them.
We send out messages on current crimes and trends, good news, events, crime prevention and police priority updates. We can also send out community critical incidents quickly, like floods, fire, or missing people. Specific messages are also sent to particular groups like Neighbourhood Watch, Horse Watch, Farm Watch; or any type of businesses like banks, pubs, or shops. Some messages can also be sent to people with particular hobbies like fishing or cycling. This way information gets to the right people, in the right area, at the right time.
