E.M.A.S.

 

Dover Police Station


E.M.A.S. is a cooperative program developed between the Dover and the Wilmington police departments.

E.M.A.S stands for E-Mail Alert System.

WHAT IS E.M.A.S.?
Every day more homes and businesses are using E-Mail. E.M.A.S. uses this 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 Valley and their backyards. It also allows the public to communicate directly to the police departments.

WHY IS E.M.A.S. IMPORTANT?
Currently the public is dependant on the newspaper to receive information about area criminal activity. In many cases it can take about a week before the public can be made aware of any criminal activity. THIS IS TOO LATE. When a town or area is subject to criminal activity, the faster the police can get the information the better the chance that the crime can be solved. In some cases the public may have witnessed a crime and not even be aware of it until they read about it in the paper.

DOES E.M.A.S. COST ANYTHING?
NO!! It is a free service. All you need is an E-Mail address and desire to be informed.

WHAT INFORMATION WILL I RECEIVE?
There are three types of messages:

ALERTS
An alert will be issued when there is information about a current criminal activity. Only appropriate information will be detailed to help develop a lead in the case.

FOLLOW Ups
Follow up information, when appropriate, on the disposition on the criminal activity.

MESSAGES
Occasionally information on meeting, events or classes related to the community.

WILL MY E-MAIL ADDRESS BE GIVEN OUT?
NO!! All messages are sent out using the BCC or Blind Carbon Copy nor will we place your E-Mail address on any lists without your permission.
