What is Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is a valued voluntary grass-root movement with its strength in building strong communities, preventing crime and working to support community resilience and community spirit.

Everyone in the community has the responsibility for preventing crime. Neighbourhood Watch aims to foster a strong and positive working relationship with the police locally, regionally and nationally.

Residents and the police support each other helping to create an environment where opportunities for crime are reduced.

It is the individual members that make any scheme successful. Neighbourhood Watch is owned by its members and not by the police. A Coordinator who is able to pass on their enthusiasm to their members is more likely to have an active, successful scheme. It is important to recognise, however, that work should be shared between scheme members and this will also help members to feel that they have a role to play
