More than 10,000 residents across the region have signed up for Lancashire Police’ ‘In The Know’ messaging system to receive regular updates on a range of topics.

‘In The Know’ allows specific messages to be sent to registered members based on their areas of interest, location and preferred means of communication, whether this is by text or email.

The system offers the ability for Police Officers and Police Staff to send updates to members of the public who have registered via the Lancashire Constabulary website http://www.lancashire.police.uk/intheknow.

Registration is quick, simple and completely free.

Sign up is completely confidential and details will not be shared with anyone else.

Upon registration, members can then choose which issues are of interest to them.

Topics include everything from business and retail crime alerts, neighbourhood watch news, rural crime alerts to volunteering and special constabulary.”

Lorraine Ellwood from the Local Policing Unit says: “We would encourage people in Lancashire to sign up. It’s the ideal way to keep in touch with the things that concern you and your community.”
