‘Getting together with your neighbours to reduce local crime and disorder in the bid to make your neighbourhood a safe and better place to live, work and play’
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing crime – it is about building community spirit and good relations. It brings local people closer together with common goals; to tackle crime and disorder and to keep an eye on each other’s property.
There are also other benefits of joining a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. For example, you can learn more about crime prevention and home security which will help keep your home and belongings safe. You might also get a discount on your home insurance.
The OWL update scheme means that you are kept informed of anti-social or malicious activities in your local area. If you are on email you will receive them direct to your PC, if you do not have an email address then your coordinator can print them off and post them through your door.
The OWL scheme is a 2-way method of communication, you can pass local concerns back to the administrators.
