About Us

Hampshire Alert Community Messaging system

The communities of the Isle of Wight play a key role in helping us to prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour. Working together, we can make the Isle of Wight a safer place to live and work.

By signing up to Isle of Wight Alert, you’ll receive messages about crime, witness appeals and general policing activity and issues in your local area, and what is being done about them. You'll also hear about positive police action, good news stories and be able to play an active part in helping us with our public appeals.

Signing is free, quick and simple. You’ll be given the option of what you want to receive alerts about, and how often. You can decide to receive alerts by email, text message and voice message – whichever suits you.

It's simple to use and you'll only receive messages about topics that you’ve selected. You can change your preferences or stop receiving messages at any time.

Please note that this service is not for reporting crimes or incidents - to make a report please contact Hampshire Constabulary via the Hampshire Constabulary website or dial 999 in an emergency.
