This week is National Neighbourhood Watch Week, a celebration of the work that NHW members across the country do in their communities.

People join Neighbourhood Watch for many different reasons, whether it is to improve safety around their home or to become part of a group and meet new people. It is widely regarded that being part of Neighbourhood Watch can:
  • Reduce / prevent local crime and disorder
  • Reduce fear of crime
  • Address issues relating to antisocial behaviour
  • Create safer neighbourhoods
  • Build community spirit and cohesion
  • Reassure members of the public
  • Enhance partnership working with other community groups
  • Assist in the detection and apprehension of criminals through members providing information to the police
  • Improve quality of life and the local environment 
Whether you are thinking about joining, already a member or leading a scheme or an Association we have a range of crime prevention advice, and support materials to suit your needs.
