What is it?
Lancashire Police “In The Know” Messaging system offers you the means to receive information from the police and other agencies in the County which suit your preferences for content, locality and means of communication.

Can I change my mind?
Of course! If you change your mind, you can unsubscribe at any time. It's your service, your call.
How about Data Protection?
Your personal details will be securely held under the provisions of the Data Protection Act and only the people you want to see your details can see them. They will never be shared with commercial organisations.
