Neighbourhood Watch Membership
Neighbourhood Watch is about local people working together to create a safe, attractive, friendly place to live – where crime is less likely to happen. It’s about looking out for your neighbours and them looking out for you to make sure no-one feels alone or vulnerable in the place where they live. Become a member of Abbotswood Neighbourhood Watch by completing the form below.
The basis of Neighbourhood Watch is good communication – as your scheme co-ordinator I need to be able to get a message quickly to all neighbours. If there is a crime in the area everyone should be told as soon as possible. If someone reports a suspicious person in the area – the sooner the rest of the neighbours are told the better – then everyone can keep an eyes open and this is a great way to protect our neighbourhood.
Criminals often strike again in the same area and warning residents about local crimes not only reminds them to be vigilant for their own security – but by keeping alert, it gives us a chance to help the police.
Call 999 to report a crime in progress or 101 for all other information. The police want and need your call – if there is something happening that you think is suspicious – call 101 – and let the police investigate.
If you would like to register your address if you have CCTV, then please tick the relevant box on the membership form. This information will only be shared with the NHW co-ordinator, restricted members of the committee and the police on request. This will reduce police time knocking on doors and may speed up any investigation/identify persons of interest.
