Crime prevention

Many people want to be more involved in the safety of their community. You can do this by joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in your area.

Neighbourhood Watch is a community-led initiative bringing local people together to address crime and other issues. It relies on close relationships with the police and local authority. The benefits of neighbourhood watch are:

  • problems are shared and discussed
  • areas of concern can be addressed
  • people work together
  • communities are safer
  • relationships are built
  • community spirit is improved
  • you may get a discount on your house insurance

For information on crime prevention and neighbourhood watch schemes in your area, contact Strathclyde Police.
