NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE
NYCC messaging is a free community messaging system for North Yorkshire that allows you to register to receive the latest crime notifications and community news happening in your local neighbourhood. This includes Crime, Rural Policing, Anti-social behaviour, Road Safety and Neighbourhood News. To get started visit www.nycm.co.uk and create an account, or download our app from your device’s App Store.
BE INFORMED- SELBY- is another New Text Message Service which aims to positively tackle anti-social behaviour in the Selby area. Kids are growing up fast and are soon teenagers, looking for their own space and independence. Keeping them on the right path and knowing where they are and what they are getting up to can be challenging at times.
As parents and carers, we want the best for them and do everything we can to make sure any slip in behaviour doesn’t end up having serious consequences on their future.
That’s why your local Selby Neighbourhood Policing Team has launched a new text message service called ‘Be Informed’. We want to work alongside local parents and carers in making sure their children don’t end up with a criminal record. The text service has been designed to keep parents in the loop of what’s going on in the local area. If our officers respond to a report of anti-social behaviour, we’ll send a text to those who are registered with the service. You’ll receive some information about the incident, so you can make contact with your child and be reassured that they are not involved and that everything is OK.
To consent to sign up for the service, please email your name, mobile phone number and which area(s) you’d like to receive updates about to:
BeInformedSelby@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk and we’ll sign you up.
