Neighbourhood Watch – An Introduction

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most popular and successful crime prevention schemes and is built on the simple idea that by getting together with your neighbours, you can take positive action to help cut local crime.

It gives people the opportunity to work in partnership with their neighbourhood police and other local agencies and make a real difference to their community.

The schemes can be large or small bringing together whole estates or a few houses. Whatever the size, they all share the same objectives which are as follows:

1. To help reduce crime and the opportunities for crime.
2. To inform members of crime prevention techniques.
3. To help and reassure those who live in the area.
4. To encourage neighbourliness and bring communities together.
