How to get involved

Community Messaging

North Yorkshire Community Messaging is a free messaging system for North Yorkshire that allows you to register to receive the latest crime notifications and community news happening in your local neighbourhood. The service has been designed to allow people who live in North Yorkshire to get information when they want, and how they want it. There is the ability to tailor your preferences for the type of messages you want and for what locations. It provides information on:

  • Crime and other police incidents, including missing people and witness appeals.
  • Rural policing, including crimes against farms and rural businesses.
  • Anti-social behaviour.
  • Road safety, including road closures and traffic updates.
  • Neighbourhood news and events, such as invitations to public meetings.

To receive messages about the York Outer area please register to community messaging.

Dot Peen Property Marking

Every year we recover hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of stolen property from the hands of criminals, but all too often there is no way of identifying its rightful owners. We have invested in the top of the range dot peen property marking machines and offering the service for free to you. To find out more information on property marking or fill out the York property marking registration form visit the Dot peen property marking page.
