Whittlesey and District Neighbourhood Watch

Creating safer, stronger and active communities



The recent terrorist attrocities in Manchester and London highlight the value of taking personal responsibility for the community in which we live. Community responsibility includes cooperation, respect and participation. The concept goes beyond thinking and acting as individuals to sharing and protecting common beliefs about interests and life.  We all have more in common than we think, whatever our individual beliefs and cultures may be.

The police and the security and intelligence agencies depend on information from you. Be our eyes and ears and help keep yourself, your family and your local community safe by looking out for suspicious activity and reporting it to the police, in confidence.

You may see or hear something that could be that vital piece of information needed to stop a terrorist attack.

The police depend on information from the public in their efforts to keep us all safe and are asking anyone who has concerns about online content to report it by clicking the STOP Terrorists’ & Extremists’ Online button.

What is CEOP?

CEOP stands for Child Exploitation and Online Protect and is a command of the NationalCrime Agency. CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account.  Their website contains a wealth of advice aimed at helping to explain the threats children face through online activities and how these can be addressed.

Neighbourhood Watch Network Into the Future

2020 - 2025  Strategic Plan


We live in unpredictable and ever-changing times. The pace of change is faster now than at any time in our past, whether this is in relation to public services, technology, communication, our working or home lives and of course crime. We were founded on the premise of bringing people together as neighbours and communities to help prevent crime, and all the evidence suggests that the need for this today is as great as it has ever been.

Getting Involved with Neighbourhood Watch

You can be invoved in a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme just by being aware of what goes on where you live and becoming part of your local community. In many areas being a Good Neighbour has become a Neighbourhood Watch Area as neighbours join together to help each other and make their area a better and safer place to live. To find out more about setting up and running a Neighbourhood watch scheme in your area you can visit the Our Watch website.

If you are interested in joining or running your own scheme here are links to information on setting up and running schemes which will open new pages in your browser.
