Police Direct

Police Direct is a high tech messaging service provided by Suffolk Police, which is designed to bring you up to date information about crime and policing issues in your area.

We can send you information by email to your computer, by text to your mobile phone, or by leaving a message on your landline.

The service will give you a range of information relating to policing, which includes the following:

  • Latest information on local crime
  • Warnings about bogus callers
  • Crime reduction advice
  • Updates from your Safer Neighbourhood Team
  • It’s free to join Police Direct and you choose how you want to receive the alerts, via email, text or phone or any combination of these.

You can register up to three postcodes in total. This could be any of the following:

  • A business premises
  • A Marina

When registering you will be asked for information about yourself. You do not have to answer all of the questions if you choose not to, but the more information we have, the better we can ensure that the information we send you is as relevant as possible.
