Last week an alert went out in the village of Belton in Rutland regarding a suspicious vehicle and its occupants. That alert and others like it was also put out on the Rutland NHW and community App, launched by Rutland NHW.
We are conducting a review of the Rutland Smartphone app and would invite all ‘users’ (not just Neighbourhood Watch) to contribute. Please send in your views how design and/or content might be improved before 2nd August 2017.
You can do so by using the Survey link on the app, or by e-mail to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’
On 30th November, 2016, Rutland Neighbourhood Watch Association (RNHWA), with the support of the Leicestershire Police, launched a free smartphone/tablet ‘app’ which makes available in one place, Police Community Safety Alerts, a wealth of Police, Crime Prevention, and County Council information, related telephone and web contacts, plus ‘quick contact/support’ buttons, free for those living and working in Rutland.
This was the first of its kind in the country, and so, on 4th August, 2017, in the light of experience, the RNHWA Board will be conducting a Review of the app and considering how the pilot design and content can be improved. Such changes as are agreed will likely be made in September/October.
I apologise for the short response time, but bullet points will suffice.
For those who have not yet tried the app, you can download it free by searching under Rutland Neighbourhood Watch at, Google Play (Android phones) or the App Store (iPhones), or view it at ‘http://theappoffice.com/community-app’.
