Neighbourhood Link

Haringey Borough Police is the latest Metropolitan Police borough to launch an innovative community messaging service to provide the public with news and information from their local police.

Called Neighbourhood Link, it is a free service that enables local residents, businesses and those who work in the borough to regularly receive information from the police.

Those signing up to Neighbourhood Link will receive emails and text messages about crime and safety in the areas they sign up to.

Through Neighbourhood Link, Safer Neighbourhoods teams will keep recipients updated with local police activity, crime prevention advice and what they are doing to address community concerns and make Haringey borough one of the safest in London.

Haringey Police Borough Commander, Sandra Looby said:

“I’m delighted to launch Neighbourhood Link in Haringey borough”

“Feedback from other boroughs using Neighbourhood Link has been extremely positive and I would encourage anyone living in, working in or visiting Haringey Borough to sign up to Neighbourhood Link and receive information about local police activity and what we are doing to address community concerns at a local level.”

Neighbourhood Link will also be used by other Metropolitan Police Service units to keep recipients informed in the event of a major incident impacting on London.
In order to receive messages, individuals will need to register their details. Registering is free of charge and will enable the police to send messages relevant to the areas where they live and work.
