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
