Wiltshire and Swindon Community Messaging; news alerts for neighbourhoods

Wiltshire & Swindon Community Messaging (WSCM) is the new service for receiving community alerts across Wiltshire and Swindon. The service is supported by Wiltshire Police, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Wiltshire and Swindon and Wiltshire & Swindon Neighbourhood Watch Association. Currently messages are being sent by Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire and Swindon Neighbourhood Watch and Action Fraud. This will soon be extending to include other watch schemes, including Horse and Farm Watch, and potentially partner agencies in the future.

By visiting the WSCM webpage, you can sign up to receive alerts by email, text message or voicemail.

Alert news feeds via QPC

The news feeds below are provided by Neighbourhood Alert who provide the nationwide community alerts system on which WSCM is based. There will be quite a lot of overlap between these two feeds.

The first feed (Community Messaging) is the most recent 20 news items for the Salisbury area published by WSCM only using information from all providers.

The second feed (Neighbourhood Alerts) is the most recent 20 news items for an area 2 miles around Quidhampton published by anyone using information from all providers.

You can subscribe to these feeds directly by clicking on the rss icon adjacent to each title.
