Police launch new app for local crime alerts
Published 5 years ago | Updated 5 years ago

North Yorkshire Police have launched a new app to help the county's residents get up to date alerts on neighbourhood crime.

The community messaging app, now available to download for iOS and Android devices, lets you receive push notifications straight to your phone or tablet. It also takes advantage of geolocation technology, allowing you to receive important alerts wherever you are in North Yorkshire – crucial for avoiding road closures, helping to find missing people and even staying safe during a large-scale emergency.

If you currently receive alerts via text or email, you may want to consider switching to push notifications to give you even greater control over when and how you receive our messages.

The North Yorkshire Community Messaging app is free, and available via the App Store for iPhone and iPad, and Google Play for Android devices. Just search for “North Yorkshire Community Messaging”, or visit
