Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is about people getting together with their neighbours to take action to reduce crime. They're community initiatives owned and run by their members which are supported by the police but not owned by them, although we sometimes run them.

They work by developing a close relationship between community members and the local police. Neighbourhood Watch schemes can:

  • cut crime and the opportunities for crime

  • help and reassure those who live in the area

  • encourage neighbourliness and closer communities
