Neighbourhood Watch

What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch is a method of developing close liaison between households in a neighbourhood, local police and other relevant agencies.

The aim is to help people protect themselves and their property, and to reduce the fear of crime by:

  • Improved home security
  • Greater vigilance
  • Fostering community spirit
  • Improving your environment

General advice

If you are ever suspicious of something, or someone, please call Police on 101 or dial 999 in an emergency. Reporting provides protection and can assist in preventing as well as solving crime.

Please note: We are not a response service. We merely work with local residents’, Police and other agencies to promote the concept of community safety. If you require a response please dial 101 for Police or 999 if in distress.
