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 and Rural Watch systems 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 at:
Neighbourhood Alert: https://member-registration.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/91/Join
Rural Watch: https://member-registration.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/173/Join
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!
