Help Local Police - Support Neighbourhood Watch

What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch Schemes involve people getting together with their neighbours to work in an active partnership with the Police to prevent crime.

Neighbourhood Watch schemes can:

  • Help prevent crime and the opportunities for crime
  • Help and reassure those who live in fear of crime
  • Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities

In Lancashire, there are now over 1900 registered Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators covering nearly 100,000 residential properties.

What are the benefits of a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing burglary figures. It is about creating communities who care and creating a better place to live, work and play.

Neighbourhood Watch schemes help bring local people together by fostering a new community spirit and a belief in the community’s ability to tackle problems by working together. At the same time, people feel secure, knowing their neighbours are keeping an eye on their property.

By taking part in a Neighbourhood Watch schemes people become familiar with crime prevention ideas which will help keep their home and belongings safe. It might even mean that you can get a premium discount from your insurance company.
