Whenever there are incidents in our parish, or our neighbouring parishes, the details are notified to Home Watch members by the Dorset Police Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) using a system called Dorset Alert.
The Home Watch Chairman can also send messages direct to all the coordinators or just a few selected subscribers, depending on the relevance. This system is not used excessively, probably not more than one message a month.
You do not have to be a member to receive these messages which are delivered by email or recorded telephone message.
Likewise if you see something odd or unusual report it to our NPT using 101 and they will issue an alert. You will be helping yourself and other members of our community.
