Tackling crime and keeping you and your community safe is a top priority across Gwent and we believe that improving the flow of information between the community and the Police can make a great impact in the prevention and detection of crime and anti-social behaviour.

Gwent now is an efficient and effective communication system designed to keep the residents of Gwent informed about the latest crime notifications and crime prevention advice for their communities. The messages can be tailored to individual preferences for both the type of messages you receive and the means of communication, directed through a preferred channel of phone, email or text message. Subscription to the system is FREE OF CHARGE.

Gwent now also allows you to register multiple locations and interests, not just a home address. This is ideal for those who want to know more about where their children go to school, family members who live elsewhere, places to socialise and place of work.
