To mark the first year anniversary of Essex Community Messaging (ECM), an ECM app was launched on Thursday October 1, 2015. This is available to download for iPhone and Android devices.
The app will enable residents to receive localised messages straight to their device, from Essex Police officers, staff and key partners such as Neighbourhood Watch.
Those who sign up to ECM will be able to select information on what they would like to receive – based on where they live, work or socialise. A new photo feature will also allow users to view images to identify stolen property and help find missing or wanted people.
ECM sign up
Sign up to ECM for free to receive accurate and up-to-date information, crime prevention advice and notifications from Essex Police officers, Essex Watch liaison officers and other key partners, such as Neighbourhood Watch.
Choose to receive this information from ECM via email, text or voice message.
Select what information you would like to receive - based on where you live, work, go to school or socialise, or on issues in which you may have a particular interest, such as scams, internet crime or rural crime.
Play an active role in helping to keep crime down in your community whilst keeping up to date with what’s going on around you.
