Welcome to Neighbourhood Alert Police, Community and Neighbourhood Watch Online tools and communication.

The Neighbourhood Alert system is an online, secure community messaging system that allows authorised administrators to log in and send messages to registered people in the community, members of Neighbourhood Watch and other schemes (Tenants and resident Associations, Church Groups, Community contacts and members of Business Watch etc), who have chosen to receive them.  Messages can be sent by email, telephone or text message by a range of approved Information Providers such as the Police, Neighbourhood Watch administrators, Trading Standards and the Fire Service.

Public sector agencies working in Partnership

The Neighbourhood Alert system enables public sector agencies such as the Police, Fire service, Trading Standards, Community Safety Partnerships and local Councils to work together in a new, efficient and secure manner.  Cumbria Community Messaging is a superb example of the system providing forward thinking agencies to work together effectively and at a fraction of the usual cost.  Watch the Partnership in Action video.

Our Aim:

To provide at no cost the latest community and Neighbourhood Watch online tools for Neighbourhood and Home Watch coordinators throughout England and Wales.  To enable sustainable reductions in crime and disorder and fear of crime by facilitating communication between Residents, Neighbourhood Watch, Trading standards, Councils and the Police.

Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Alert is the official online secure database for The Neighbourhood and Home Watch Network (England & Wales) (NHWN), thousands of scheme coordinators and members use the online tools to manage their schemes, review crime stats, define scheme coverage areas and send messages between scheme members.  Follow this link to hear what a Nottingham Coordinator thinks about the Multi scheme management tools.  Please visit for more information.

News and explanations can be viewed in our video archive.
