Neighbourhood Watch rests on the concept of good neighbourliness. The basic idea is simply: neighbours join together to keep watch on each other’s homes and their immediate surroundings in the bid to make the neighbourhood a safe and better place to live, work and play.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing crime – it is about building community spirit and good relations. It brings local people closer together with common goals: to deter those who are up to no good. Working together we can make life very difficult for burglars, doorstep con-men and vandals.
