Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention initiatives ever. By joining together with your neighbours, you can help to reduce crime and make your community safer for everyone. This is a vision shared by millions of people around the country. We all know that the police are there to fight crime, but they need help to do an effective job.
Neighbourhood Watch is an active partnership with the police and can help to:
- Reduce crime and the opportunities for crime
- Help and reassure those who live in fear of crime
- Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities
