HBNW has upgraded its communications systems and has adopted a mobile platform, previously called Ttrumpet, but recently rebranded as "Link". If you are familiar with WhatsApp then you will understand how Link works, because Link is in essence a more specific Whats App group, better suited to crime notification and reporting.
Real time patroller tracking
Patroller SOS / Medic function
Vetted incident reports
Why not just stick to using Whats App? Because it has limitations which Link does not. Do we need all these features? Yes we do. As the pressures that drive crime in our communities increase we will have to make use of technology that enables us to work smarter and more carefully with crime intelligence that needs to move quickly and securely within the broadening civilian SAPS partnerships that are forming.
HBNW has also assisted in the development and customisation of Link to better suit NW operational needs.We invite you to participate by loading the Link app onto your mobile phone from the Android Play Store or iPhone App Store. Participants will be able to receive and contribute information relating to security issues whilst still being able to do everything that you previously did with WhatsApp like Chat, free calls, etc.
We do not charge for membership and there is no expectation that members have to contribute financially. However we need to maintain the systems that keep YOU safe.So we welcome donations from residents and businesses alike.
For more details on Area Safety Plans and the spending of area specific donations (ring-fenced funds) please contact your Area Leader.
