News and notices from the Safer New Forest partnership.
Hampshire Constabulary operate and facilitate a community messaging system via the Hampshire Alert website. The communities of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight play a key role in helping Hampshire Constabulary to prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour. Improving the flow of information between the community and the police is vital to achieving our aim to work together to deter criminals and keep communities safe.
The Hampshire Alert website provides an invitation for the community and residents to participate in the exchange of information with Hampshire Constabulary and Neighbourhood Watch.
If you live or work in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight, Hampshire Constabulary invite you to register now to become a recipient of messages of information, crime alerts and witness appeals local to the area in which you live or work in a way that suits your needs and lifestyle by email, text or telephone.
As a registered recipient you will not only benefit from two way messaging but may also hear about positive police action in your community, help identify suspected or wanted criminals or learn about community groups, events or meetings in your area.
This service is not for reporting crimes or incidents. To report these please contact Hampshire Constabulary on 999 in an emergency or 101 for non-emergencies. You can also report crime online on the Hampshire Constabulary website.
Domestic homicide reviews were introduced in 2011 under Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004. Community safety partnerships are responsible for commissioning a multi-agency review in certain circumstances where the death may have resulted from violence, abuse, neglect, by a relative or someone connected to the household.
The review is led by an independent chair who considers the roles of each agency and the information provided from the victim's family and makes recommendations to identify lessons learned and whether changes are needed to reduce the risk of it happening again in the future.
