Neighbourhood Watch began life in the UK over 30 years ago in response to rising crime and It's just as relevant today with the ever changing face of crime and the pressure on police resources.
Our main aim is to help prevent crime, reduce the fear of crime and improve community safety.
The Police alone can't deal with all the problems arising from crime and anti-social behaviour. They need the help of the whole community. Neighbourhood Watch provides a way for local people to play an important part in making their communities safer.
"Crime cannot flourish in a community that cares."
To see where the Watch schemes are in your area - use the post code search at the top of this page.
By entering your postcode you have the option to apply to join a local scheme or send a message to the local scheme coordinator.
You can also see the scheme information, police details, policing priorities, crimes and outcomes for your area.
