OWL - next generation of neighbourhood watch

Online Watch Link or OWL is a secure electronic communications database, to be used by the Police in the West London policing area (called the BCU) of the boroughs of Ealing, Hillingdon and Hounslow.
It is also used by all the neighbourhood watch coordinators in your own area, across the three boroughs which will enable targeted messaging and engagement to you as registered users.
The system went 'live' on 16 May, so from now, NW Coordinators and Police will be able to interact with you in your Ward with different messages to include local crime trends, newsletters, and crime prevention leaflets and advice.
You can now register for free at You'll be able to receive targeted messages, information, and alerts through an email platform that is secure, discreet.
