OWL app

OWL app

Thanks to an OWL (Online Watch Link) app, you can now get notifications when your local police officers issue a new alert for your area. You can also view recent alerts, appeals and crime prevention advice, plus the latest scam alerts from ActionFraud.

Hundreds of police officers use OWL to send alerts, advice and updates directly to the public. Every resident and business is invited to receive instant notifications directly to their mobile or tablet based on their current postcode location. The post code can be changed and multiple nearby zones of interest can be selected.

As well as alerts on residential burglary and vehicle crime, you can choose other interests impacted by crime such as business, shop, dog, horse, rural and canal (varies by location).

No registration is needed and no personally identifiable data is collected. Download the OWL app now to help keep you and your family safe.
