New Thames Valley Alert App launched

New Thames Valley Alert App launched

This information has been sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police. Working in partnership to make our community safer

Thames Valley Police is delighted to announce that the Thames Valley Alert App has been launched and is free to download now

The app, which is available on iPhone and Android, can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play and allows you to receive instant notifications to your phone on the latest policing alerts in your area (please note that you must enable push notifications to receive these).

The app can use GPS data to send you targeted messages according to your current geographical location and messaging preferences, sending you instant notifications to your mobile phone about specific information, warnings and advice relevant to that location.

The app offers a number of other features, including allowing you to quickly locate your closest police station, and also provides a feed of the latest Thames Valley-wide news on Twitter, so you’ll never miss those important Force-wide updates and breaking news. This facility is available on the app even if you do not have a Twitter account.

Please note that you do not have to download the app to get alerts; you can still choose to receive alerts via email, text or voicemail.  To download the app, visit the Apple store or Google Play and search ‘Thames Valley Alert’.

Do you know of any unpaid carers in Horley?

‘This year the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire is Mrs Sarah Taylor.  She has chosen to make her theme for the year the plight of unpaid carers in Oxfordshire.  Apparently, across the county there are very many people who have been forced to give up work in order to care for someone else.  She is working with a group called Carers Oxfordshire, whose role is to provide support to people working as unpaid carers.

The parish council is not aware of anyone in this position, but if there is and they would like to speak to Carers Oxfordshire, if they contact me I will put them in touch.’ David Marriott
