What does Neighbourhood Watch involve?
Schemes vary widely. At its most basic level membership involves being aware of what happens in your neighbourhood, taking simple precautions to prevent and reduce the risk of crime and being alert to anything that is suspicious.
NHW is a community initiative owned and run by the community. The Police support this community initiative, they do not run it. Members have a key role in making it a success.
Aims of Neighbourhood Watch:
Neighbourhood Watch aims to develop a close liaison between householders in a neighbourhood and the local Police.
