Neighbourhood watch is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention initiatives ever. Everyone knows that the police are there to fight crime, but they need your help to do an effective job.
What can Neighbourhood watch do for you?
- Cut crime and the opportunity for crime
- Help reassure those who live in fear of crime
- Encourage closer communities.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing burglary figures: it’s about creating communities who care. It brings local people together and can make a real contribution to improving their lives. The activity of 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.
There are benefits to being a member of the scheme; members will become familiar with crime prevention ideas which will help you keep your home and belongings safe. The extra security, which belonging to a scheme offers may mean that you can get a premium discount from your insurance company.
How does this scheme work?
Crudwell village will be coordinated by Grant Dunkley, with schemes throughout the village being supported by a dedicated team of local volunteers.
Schemes can be large, covering most households on an estate or road or they might involve just a half dozen houses. Numbers depend on the area and will reflect how individual residents want to be grouped.
