An Active Neighbourhood Watch Area Is A Safer Area To Live And Work In.

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most effective crime reduction initiatives and its values are recognised by our partners, the Police, Fire & Rescue Service and the Borough and Parish Councils.

It’s all about people getting together and actively having a positive impact on crime in their area.

Would you like to consider developing a scheme in your village and encourage residents and neighbours to join?

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing burglary figures; it’s about creating communities that care. It brings local people together and can make a real contribution to improving their lives. The activities of Watch Members can foster a new community spirit and belief in the community’s ability to tackle problems. At the same time, you feel secure, knowing your neighbours are keeping an eye on your property in return.

Please consider joining the new scheme today. It’s free and worthwhile. You can register on line, through the OURWATCH website. Visit: and follow the link to join.

If you do not have access to an email address, you can request a paper registration form by leaving a message on our voicemail. Leave your name and postal address and we will forward one to you.

The effectiveness of any scheme is dependent on the enthusiasm and efforts of those involved.

Please remember: if you need to report a suspicious activity or a non-emergency incident, please ring 101. If there is a crime in action, or an emergency, please ring 999.

When reporting incidents, the more details you can give, the more you are helping the Authorities.
