Whittlesey and District Neighbourhood Watch is about local people working together to create safer, attractive and friendly place to live. We aim to make our area a place where crime is less likely to happen.
Our group is owned and run by our community and reflects our needs.
The Neighbourhood Watch scheme is divided into areas each led by a volunteer co-ordinator. These are volunteers from the local community who take on the role of linking the community to the police. By being more aware of local issues, sharing information and advice, local residents are able to develop closer and more effective links with the police and also help to reassure and support vulnerable households.
Anyone can reach the police quickly and easily in an emergency by dialing 999, or in a non-emergency on 101. Neighbourhood Watch helps you, and your neighbours, give your local police a much clearer sense of your needs and local issues. Neighbourhood Watch group members know their communities well. The police and other organisations can then take action based on this knowledge.
The police do not run Neighbourhood Watch schemes, but are glad to get input and clear guidance on local needs from them. Watch members are active citizens who want to help their communities.
