Neighbourhood watch

Category: Neighbourhood watch


The Neighbourhood Watch scheme in the United Kingdom is a partnership intended to bring people together to make their communities safer.

It involves the police, Community Safety departments of local authorities, other voluntary organisations and individuals and families who ostensibly want to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

It aims to help people protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit.
