What is Community Messaging?
Community Messaging uses the Constabulary’s award-winning Online Watch Link (OWL) to keep you up to date with what’s going on in your police service. It is an automated system that emails you with useful information, news about your local police and crime prevention advice. It can also send short SMS text messages direct to your mobile.
To receive Community Messaging you must be living or working with a registered postal address in Hertfordshire. In most instances we will contact you by email. Should the need arise, occasional SMS text could be sent to your mobile phone for urgent or emergency incidents.
After you have signed up to Community Messaging we will be able to send you messages of interest relating to Hertfordshire and/or specific to your neighbourhood or district. Hertfordshire Constabulary will send you around one or two messages a fortnight, although you may be sent additional messages should the need arise. This service is completely free.
If you already receive messages via OWL as a member of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, there's no need to register as you will automatically be sent Community Messages.
