Remember the days of Police and Community Telephone (PACT) messages to your landline?

The City of Calgary and Calgary Police Service have updated the system (which was most recently known as the Police and Community Awareness Program or PCAP) to now send important safety and community notifications to you via text message and email. Voicemail messages will also still be available.

As of March 1 the program, now called the Hub Messaging System, can send Calgarians information on neighbourhood crime alerts, emergencies, missing persons and events. The new system also allows Calgarians to customize the alerts they receive and where they receive them.

If you received PCAP messages in the past, you need to register for the new messaging system. To sign-up for the alerts visit calgary.ca.
