We highly recommend for everyone to sign up to Police Connect, the free message alert system from the constabulary. People can choose how they would like to receive messages - by any combination of either telephone, mobile or email.
People can register on-line or for those people without internet services, there is an option to complete and send off a paper form - which can be viewed and downloaded from here.
