People and Businesses urged to sign up to Owl


North Wales Police are urging more people and businesses to sign up to an effective community messaging system to help prevent crime.


OWL, or online watch link connects neighbourhood watch members and the police through the internet, phone, and other communication tools.


The sort of information received can be anything from the latest scams, information about burglaries or thefts in your area, missing people, stolen items and suspicious behaviour.


Across North Wales there have been incidents of fuel thefts and burglaries where property has been left insecure with keys taken and vehicles stolen.


OWL is now available to support commercial vehicle operators, coach parks, MOT stations which can register under the OWL ‘Commercial Vehicle Group’ to receive the crime alerts and help prevent them becoming victims of fuel theft.


Watch schemes, working closely with their policing teams and Community Safety Partnerships are also being used to combat car crime.


Denise Edwards Chief Officer, Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch Association said ; “People who have used  OWL say it helps  them feeling safer in their homes. It helps make our communities stronger and more confident in the knowledge that their Community Safety Partnerships in North Wales are working with the public to improve the quality of life for everyone lives, works and visit the area.”
