Police Scotland North East Division is urging folk to register with Neighbourhood Alert

Neighbourhood Alert logo

Police Scotland's North East Division covers rural and urban areas in Moray, Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City.

The Community Policing Teams are supported by dedicated Crime Reduction Officers who assist them in their work to promote crime reduction and progress prevention opportunities which we see as key to reducing crime and antisocial behaviour in your area.

Whilst crime reduction advice is regularly provided to individuals who raise a specific query, the fact that you are reading this message means that you are already aware of the Neighbourhood Alert system which now affords Police Scotland and our partners an exciting new opportunity to send e-mail messages relating to local crime trends and containing crime prevention advice quickly and effectively to a wide audience, but which can be targeted to particular streets or communities if required.

As you know, any individual can sign-up to receive these e-mail messages, either for themselves or on behalf of their community group, and the sign-up process allows the recipient to specify the type of information that they are interested in and from what source. Neighbourhood Watch Scotland, who coordinate this resource, work with a range of partners in the public sector to provide information not only on crime prevention but also on matters of community safety and resilience.

You already know all this of course, but please share this opportunity widely with friends, family and work colleagues. The more people who sign up, the more effective the system and its information sharing capabilities becomes, allowing communities to become better informed and make better decisions that will help keep the North East one of the safest places in Scotland to live & work.

Remember, your friends, family and work colleagues can sign up for Neighbourhood Alert at:


We now have over 1500 members receiving our messages in the North East and with your help, we hope to continue increasing that number.

Thank you and happy new year from North East Division!
