Issue 84

Welcome to Issue 84 of the LNWA Newsletter – produced to maintain your contact with us and e-mailed to all 32 Boroughs plus the City.  Single Points of Contact (SPOCs) are regularly updated so, if you are receiving this for the first time, it’s because you are identified as the Neighbourhood Watch Contact for your Borough.  LNWA is anxious information reaches the grassroots so please ensure everyone in a Watch in your Borough is encouraged to read this Newsletter which is also accessible via our website, http://www.lnwa.net

NEIGHBOURHOOD ALERT

For those of you who have signed up to Neighbourhood Alert via the OurWatch website, there is news of further development:

  • a ‘chat’ function;
  • survey tools;
  • a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section aimed at users struggling with common questions, e.g. forgotten log-in details;
  • a simplified registration process.  The development of survey tools will help with this because questions around demographics and areas of interest can be asked later rather than during registration; and
  • the message format is being clarified to make it visually better.

The developers are also building a series of ‘quick selection’ options for messaging in order to make it simpler and easier to use; for example, the ability to select ‘All Coordinators’ at the click of a button.

That’s it for this month.  As usual, on behalf of LNWA, thank you for your work and support.
