The Devon and Cornwall alert system helps the police obtain information on happenings in the local area whilst also keeping people informed and aware. The system is designed so that people can recieve the infromation they would like, and subscribers do not recieve alerts on every incident. The main goal is to help reduce crime and also help to give the police more information regarding crime.
