Devon and Cornwall Alert is a two way community messaging system operated by Devon and Cornwall Police. The system helps the police to connect with local communities, it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information.

The system is designed to allow people who register to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.

Subscribers will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in their community. The aim is to send relevant information where to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or will help Devon and Cornwall Police solve a crime. You can sign up for the service here.
