From our Met Police Safer Neighbourhood Team:
“Hope you are all well and keeping safe. I’m writing to you to inform you, if you aren’t already aware of it, of OWL also known as Online Watch Link. This is an initiative from Haringey police to keep you informed of what’s happening in your local area from your local team. You can join up to your Neighbourhood watch and be part of your streets efforts to deter crime or you can simply just join community messaging which means you will just receive messages from your local police team and not be part of the neighbourhood watch.
“There are also schemes you can join like CCTV watch for residents with CCTV cameras, ring doorbells etc.. and are happy for police to utilise the camera in an effort to detect crime and catch criminals. You can also join Dog watch where you will receive dedicated crime prevention messages regarding your pets and keeping them safe. If you own a business in Haringey then you can also separately join Business watch and receive dedicated business messages regarding crime prevention and goings on in Haringey that affect your businesses.”
OWL is fast becoming the go to system for police to contact their residents so please join up to OWL, its completely FREE and only takes a minute or two to join up. Simply visit www.owl.co.uk/met to sign up. Please let your neighbours know as well and build up a strong neighbourhood watch in your area.
