Alert Montgomery Police Community Alert System
Police Community Alert System
In a continuing effort to connect to the community via technology, the Montgomery County Department of Police has launched the Community Alert System. The Community Alert System is part of the County’s Alert Montgomery program. The Montgomery County Police will send messages via email and/or text messages to cell phones, pagers, smart phones in regards to a variety of police issues to include crime trends, critical incidents, missing persons and more.
The Alert Montgomery System has many selectable alert groups to include the Montgomery County Public Schools, Parks, Montgomery College, Municipalities, as well as traffic and weather alerts.
Anyone that works, lives or has an interest in Montgomery County is encouraged to sign up at alert.montgomerycountymd.gov. Users will be prompted to select particular geographical police areas known as beats, under MCPD Police District Alerts tab.
If users are not sure what beat they live or work in, please email the address or addresses you want to be alerted for, to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you the beat information you need. Please allow 72 hours for a response.
An example of a beat in Rockville would be “Adam 1”, the user would select Adam 1 Beat to receive alerts for that area. If users would like a more global approach they can sign up for an entire district (1st District – Rockville) to receive district wide messages. Users can sign up for multiple beats or districts (work, school, etc).
The Montgomery County Police offer several technologies to connect with the community such as:
