HNW and the MPS launch OWL

Hillingdon Neighbourhood Watch continue to grow the number of residents signing up to the new Borough-wide system called OWL (Online Watch Link), which went live in June of this year, and over 9,000 residents are now receiving messages directly from the Police and NHW.

OWL allows the Police to quickly alert you to crimes in your immediate area, and crime prevention messages can be sent to you by both the Police and Neighbourhood Watch. It is a huge leap forwards in enabling the Police and the public to work together in closer partnership.

We invite you to sign up to OWL today at the following address:

Simply enter your Postcode, fill out your details on the screen, and submit. As soon as we receive your request we will put your details onto OWL within a few working days, and you will receive an email with your login and password.

OWL is a secure system, it is free to use, and your details will never be used or sold on for marketing purposes – it is the ONLY secure communications system in the UK that is Police approved under the “Secured By Design” scheme. Your contact details are only visible to the Police, your Watch Coodinator (if one exists for your road) and senior Community/Ward Coordinators – your Community (Borough) Coordinators for Hillingdon are fully vetted MPS Civilian Volunteers.

You won’t need to log in to OWL to see alerts – they will come straight to your email or mobile phone inbox – the system is very simple to use.
