What is Derbyshire Alerts?

Derbyshire Alert if 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. It keeps you informed of local events and crimes in your area, and appeals for any witnesses or information.

Anybody can sign 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.

Messages are sent out on current crimes and trends, good news, events, crime prevention and police priority updates. They can also send out community critical incidents quickly like floods, fire and missing people.

Specific messages are also sent out to particular groups like Neighbourhood Watch, Horse Watch, Farm Watch; or any type of business like banks, pubs or shops. Some messages can also be sent to people with particular interests like fishing or cycling. This way information gets to the right people, in the right area, at the right time.

You can register for Derbyshire Alert to receive emails about what's happening in your local area. These messages are sent by the police, Neighbourhood Watch and other organisations dedicated to community safety. You can even feedback information to local police teams.

You are in Control

The service is free and tailored so you can choose what sort of alerts you want to receive - whether you would like:
