West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) has joined the messenger system "West Yorkshire Community Alert".
The system enables members of the public to keep in touch and receive updates from West Yorkshire Police and as of now the PCC.
Public registration is completely free and once registered you will receive information and updates on the latest news, consultations, funding opportunities and much more.
West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson said: "Working with communities is at the heart of what we do and I welcome the implementation of this new system which will help to increase engagement and awareness.
"This additional communication tool will also further empower people to link in with West Yorkshire Police, and partner organisations. I often receive feedback from members of the public who would welcome further contact.
"We all have a responsibility to encourage inclusivity and build relationships in communities. These relationships strengthen our resilience and ultimately help to keep us safe which is the overall aim of the Police and Crime Plan."
