 Things You Should Know About NPD's EMAS System

Everyday more homes and business are using E-mail. E.M.A.S uses this new communications tool to deliver information directly to the public from the police department. It allows the public to participate in the process of community policing by being informed of events occurring in the town of Norwell. It also allows Norwell citizens to communicate directly back to the department.

Currently the public is dependent upon the newspaper media to receive information about area criminal activity. In many cases it can take a week for this information to be disseminated by the press. Often this is too late. When the town is subjected to criminal activity, the faster the police can disseminate the information to the public, the better chance the public will be of assistance.

Any Norwell resident or business interested in community safety can receive E.M.A.S. This is a free service. There is no special hardware or software needed.
