Neighbourhood Watch has been relaunched in North and South Wheatley as Neighbourhood and Home Watch. We think that a combination of cuts in police budgets combined with an increase in “cyber” crime makes it even more important that village communities do more to look after themselves.
Neighbourhood and Home Watch is a method of developing close liaison between households in a neighbourhood, local police and other relevant agencies.
The aim is to help people protect themselves and their property, and to reduce the fear of crime by:
– Working together to keep the community and its residents safe
– Improved home security
– Greater vigilance and watching out for one another
– Addressing areas of local concern
– Improving your environment
– Keeping residents up to date with crime-related trends, such as internet and phone scams
