Be informed: Positively tackling anti-social behaviour

North Yorkshire Police have launched a new text service in York and Selby, aimed at parents and carers of teenage children.

Kids grow up fast and are soon teenagers, looking for their own space and independence.

Keeping them on the right path and knowing where they are and what they are getting up to can be challenging at times.

As parents and carers, we want the best for them and do everything we can to make sure any slip in behaviour doesn't end up having serious consequences on their future.

That’s why North Yorkshire Police have launched a text message service called ‘Be Informed‘, to work alongside parents and carers in making sure their children don't end up with a criminal record.

The scheme is designed to keep parents in the loop of what's going on in the local area. If Police officers respond to a report of anti-social behaviour, they will send a text to those who are registered with the service. You will receive some information about the incident so you can make contact with your child and be reassured that they are not involved and that everything is OK.

To consent to sign up for the service, please email your name, mobile phone number and which area you'd like to receive updates about to and they will sign you up.

The areas they will send updates about are Barlby, Brayton, Eggborough, Selby Town, Sherburn and Tadcaster.

Be informed is delivered through North Yorkshire Community Messenger. For further information on what they do with your personal data, please visit

You may withdraw your consent to the service at any time by emailing and request to be removed.
