trygve logoThe Trygve community safety smartphone and computer app is continuing to become more embedded in north London, for the time being mostly in crime-fighting mode - for instance, see this example of how using Trygve local people and police were able to crack down on drug and weapons crime in Finsbury Park.  But Trygve also has other uses - it can be used to help people get home safely at night and plan and publicise local events.

Trygve is being used by the Palmers Green Safer Neighbourhoods Team and by local councillors.  The screenshot below (taken from the desktop/laptop version) shows some recent activity in our neighbourhood.

Borough of Enfield to pilot new community app

The Metropolitan London Police of Enfield are trialing a new way of communicating with the residents in the London Borough of Enfield, and you’re invited to take part.

Trygve is a free community safety app that provides a digital platform that allows users to connect, work together and look out for each other through a variety of features. It’s also a great way to receive and discuss local information from the Police in real time.

Local activity, consolidated.

Trygve allows you to share and receive local incident information ('events') directly on to a map or through your group chats. When you want to create an event, you can choose the event location, type, urgency and who can see it. Images can also be added to the event.


Talk to your groups and other users about events in your area.

Events can be 'acknowledged', commented on and shared. Together with other Trygve users, you can discuss events, strategize action plans, support people who require assistance or share information with people who may be affected.

Stay in the loop

A constant local newsfeed at your finger tips.

Your feed displays events and information most relevant to you in an easy-to-read format. You can easily view, comment and react to events here and additional information from Team Trygve will be posted here occasionally.

Personal Safety Alarm

A call for help is a tap away.

Trygve's Personal Safety Alarm has you covered in times when you may feel vulnerable. An alarm can be manually triggered or set to a timer which will automatically trigger if not deactivated, sending an alert to either your selected groups or nearby public Trygve users.
