A new free community messaging service which allows members of the public to receive personalised news and crime updates in their local area was launched by Merseyside Police and the Police Commissioner on Monday 21 March 2016

MerseyNow will be used to send out appeals, crime prevention messages, offer support to victims and give advice about ongoing incidents.

Members of the public can register for the free service and then control the way in which they receive messages – either via text, email or voice message. They can also choose which updates they receive based on the topics that are of interest to them, such as crime prevention and burglaries.
