“MerseyNow has been developed to bring the communication of essential police and crime information to the public right up to date.
Using text messages, email and social media, it will be another tool which Merseysiders will now be able to use to get alerts, police notifications and crime prevention advice when they need it and enable them to give instant responses.
By launching this new messaging service the aim is to modernise communication between Merseyside Police, their key partners and the communities they serve to reduce crime and keep people safe. I hope over the coming months MerseyNow will help us to achieve even greater dialogue between the police and local people, improving the two way-flow of information about crime and community safety issues.”
