trygve screen shotPalmers Green is pioneering the use of a Swedish smartphone app to help residents work together with Police and community groups to support each other and increase safety and security in the area, as well as decrease criminal activity.  But don't worry if you haven't got a smartphone -  you can also join in using any computer that's connected to the Web.

The Metropolitan Police have selected Enfield to pilot the Trygve app, which is now in use by the Palmers Green Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team.  By downloading the app and joining the Palmers Green team you can start to send and receive messages. The app is completely free to download and use.

At the moment only the team in Palmers Green ward is using the app, but that doesn't stop people who live elsewhere installing the app now and using it to collaborate with their friends and neighbours.

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.

Communicate

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.

Collaborate

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.

I've been asked to add that you don't need a smartphone to use Trygve - you can set up an account on your computer by visiting my.trygve.co.uk . No need to install any software, it all works on a web page, and you can log in using Facebook.

The London boroughs of Southwark and Enfield are trialling new methods of community engagement, using the digital communication tool Trygve.

Trygve is a free app, which provides a specially designed digital platform where users can collaborate on a local level, empowering community members to support each other and work together to solve local issues and combat crime.

In Southwark, the Neighbourhood Watch Association had been seeking out appropriate digital platforms for a while. “Trygve is a terrific app that’s free and will surely benefit everyone in the area,” Marcus Suitor, Secretary Southwark Neighbourhood Watch Association said.

“We are hoping it enhances communication between members, but also encourages the younger generation to play more of an active role in Neighbourhood Watch. We hope everyone who lives and works in the Southwark area gets involved," Marcus continued.

In Enfield, the Palmers Green Police Safer Neighbourhoods Team had expressed keen interest in better utilizing digital technology to have more of a presence in the community. Police Officer Kat Johnson said "This tool allows police to have a presence in a digital environment that is safe and accessible to anyone. We really look forward to see how it enhances our engagement with the Palmers Green community.”

"Local residents are so often the ones who witness criminal activity first or can sense a change in the environment they’re in. Tapping into that ground level intelligence is so important.” Officer Johnson continued.

The aim of these pilots is to create a culture where safety and security is enhanced and reinforced by the community's own efforts, by allowing residents, community groups, neighbourhood watch groups and police to collaborate with each other.

Trygve is free for all private users and is available on iOS through the App Store and Android through Google Play. There is also a computer version of the app for non-smartphone users.

“These pilots will present a real insight on how communities in very large and complex cities, like London, can band together and utilize each other more. We hope we can take what we learn from Southwark and Enfield and apply it to the other boroughs of London," Sheona Urquhart, Trygve UK Manager, said.

“Everyone has an important role to play, whether they're residents, Neighbourhood Watch coordinators or police.”

So, if you live or work in or around the Southwark or Enfield boroughs of London, you're invited to be a part of this exciting new community movement!
