A new online system for recording crime, antisocial behaviour, and suspicious activity is to be introduced in Caerphilly County Borough.
Volunteers will meet with council officials and Neighbourhood Policing Teams later this month to discuss the new system called Online Watch Link, or OWL.
Owl allows crime alerts to be shared with police online. People are encouraged to record note their observations on the system which is then searchable by the police.
The meeting to discuss the new system will take place on Monday November 22 at Caerphilly County Borough Council’s headquarters at Penallta House, from 5.45pm until 8pm.
Councillor Lyn Ackerman, cabinet member for the environment and a trained community crime fighter said: “Multi-agency working is vital in our quest for even safer communities. We are extremely lucky to have the Safer Caerphilly Volunteer Network working alongside our partnership as they are a dedicated and effective group who can be relied upon to assist with some very important local issues.”
