Neighbourhood Watch works with the Police in the prevention and detection of crime. We encourage a two way flow of information regarding potential or actual crimes. As members of Neighbourhood Watch groups we look out for each other's interests whilst away from home and we look for and report suspicious incidents. Remember to report anything suspicious no matter how small it may seem, every little bit of information helps.

It is a group of individuals who, by their concern for each other and the area in which they live, voluntarily act in conjunction with the Police in the prevention and detection of crime.
