For those that are just a heartbeat away from their smartphone, there is now an app to cover Neighbourhood Watch issues. The wording is as submitted with one or two edits so that it works on this web village site.
It is with great pleasure I draw to your attention the recent launch (30th November), in Oakham, of the Rutland Neighbourhood Watch and Community smartphone 'app', specifically for Rutland. It is the first of its kind in the country, and provides an excellent way to help address crime and anti-social behaviour. It makes crime and community safety related information more accessible, and by sharing vital local news and providing a wealth of the latest information, it enables you to make better decisions about your home, family, and neighbourhood. In addition, the 'app' has four 'quick help' lines to: the Emergency Services, Crimestoppers, Domestic Abuse Support, and Childline/NSPCC. It has no advertisements. More »
Scroll down and tap the 'Preview App' to see the various services offered. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The app is not confined to Neighbourhood Watch members, and may be downloaded free by any resident or worker in Rutland;
If you like it, please draw it to the attention of your friends, there is even a button to share it. The app is registered and approved by both Google and Apple.
This is the brainchild of a local Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator, Jan Warren, who was assisted by local NHW volunteers over about 12 months, their services were entirely free. Technical design was by The App Office, Nottingham (see above link). It will be administered by local volunteers, who are currently under training, so initially, please make allowances for this.
