HOW TO REPORT
I am your Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator. So if you have concerns regarding events or problems in our village that you feel I could help with please do contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org 07471 658194.
However, for emergencies please dial 999
For something non-urgent but you feel the police should know about please call 101. If you suspect criminal activity and wish to remain anonymous your can or go online to Crimestoppers and also to report non urgent crimes. Or submit online at www.leics.police.uk
I am also your local Cyber Awareness Ambassador who can help regarding scams and spams. So if you need advice regarding anything you are not sure of you can contact me or Action Fraud.
The main advice is, do not click on links until you are absolutely sure it is from the company it says. Check the email details and this will tell you immediately if it is a scam. NEVER give you bank details to anyone who sends a text or email as no banks or legitimate companies will never request this information by text or email.
The UK government’s new Emergency Alerts is now live, and you should expect to receive a test message.
The system will enable people to be contacted via their mobile phone when lives are in danger. It will be used to warn you in the event of emergencies, such as severe flooding.
Emergency Alerts are sent to all compatible mobile phones within an area of risk. They don’t track your location, need your phone number, or collect personal data. Only the government and the emergency services will be able to send them.
If you don’t have a mobile phone, you’ll still be kept informed through other channels.
Should you get an Emergency Alert on your phone, you will hear a loud, siren-like sound. A message on your screen will tell you about the emergency and how best to respond.
You will be able to check an alert is genuine at gov.uk/alerts. If you receive an alert, read the alert carefully and follow the instructions.
