Quote received from a registered member May 2014:
'I am signed up to Lincs Alert and wanted to tell you how valuable I feel the service is. I receive emails a handful of times each week. It feels the right number - not too many, they are relevant to me, impressively they are very responsive (for example a reminder to be vigilant after break-ins this week was received within a day of the incidents taking place). They also seem reassuring; if I received an email about every attempted break-in I probably would be worried but they strike a nice balance.
I am grateful to both you individually for being the human face of policing in the area, and to those involved in the scheme for which I hope you will convey my message.'
