Community Messaging Service (CMS)

Watch schemes encourage communities to work together to protect themselves and their property, which in turn can help to prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime.  Therefore, contributing to our vision of protecting people from harm.  Watch schemes work in two ways:

  • Join a local watch scheme or start a watch scheme
  • Sign up to receive crime alerts, crime prevention advice and community safety information

Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police support the activity of thousands of members of watch schemes. For more information regarding watch schemes in your area, including Neighbourhood Watch and to sign up for our Community Message Service (CMS), please see the specific watch scheme pages below.

Remember if you have any information that may assist the police and the community, please inform the police as soon as possible.

  • In case of an emergency or a crime is in progress, dial 999
  • For non urgent incidents and crimes that are not in progress, dial 101
