Police Scotland’s North East Division covers rural and urban areas in Moray,
Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City.

Within the Division the community policing teams are supported by dedicated Crime
Reduction Officers who assist them in their work to promote crime reduction and
progress prevention opportunities which we see as key to reducing crime and antisocial
behaviour in your area.

Whilst crime reduction advice is regularly provided to individuals who raise a specific

Any individual can sign-up to receive these e-mail messages, either for themselves or
their community group, and the sign-up process allows the recipient to specify the type of

Scotland, who coordinate this resource, work with a range of partners in the public sector

information which will assist them in keeping themselves, their families and their

Please take the opportunity to sign-up for Neighbourhood Alert e-mail messages and
encourage your family, friends and neighbours to do the same. Whilst the number of
subscribers is constantly growing, the more people who sign-up to receive these alerts,
which we always try to send timeously, the more effective these messages will become
as they allow communities to become better informed and make better decisions.
There is no requirement to join or set up a Neighbourhood Watch, simply follow the link
below to the registration instructions. By signing up you control your personal
information, contact details and also decide what information providers who want to
receive Alerts from.
