Yelvertoft Neighbourhood Watch – WhatsApp Crime Alert Group

Welcome to Yelvertoft Neighbourhood Watch – WhatsApp Crime Alert Group

What is it?

The Parish Council have started a WhatsApp group intended to be used by villagers to alert the community to urgent crime issues such as;

● Crimes in Progress
● Suspicious behaviour (non Covid related)
● Cry for help
● Suspicious vehicles
● To pass on reports from elsewhere

Important – You must still report serious crime to the police and get a crime number – you should then share this number with the group.

What is it not?

The group is not for moaning, chatting, gossip, reporting neighbours or parking issues It must be kept clear for important alerts.

The Parish Council will remove any group member who misuses the system.
