Neighbourhood Watch

NHW LogoNeighbourhood Watch is one of the largest and most successful crime prevention initiatives. It is a method of developing close liaison between households in a neighbourhood, the local police and the local authority. The aim is to help people protect themselves and their properties, to reduce the fear of crime and improve their local environment by:

  • Improved home security
  • Greater vigilance
  • Fostering a community spirit

It has been proven that areas that operate a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme are less likely to be targeted by crime, rogue traders and distraction burglars. There are many advantages to be gained from being part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, including a sense of greater contentment and security amongst participants and a feeling of being involved in the community - bringing back the community spirit and giving you peace of mind.

NHW Stay Safe Leaflet

Cambridgeshire NHW are pleased to provide access to a new e-booklet designed by Neighbourhood & Home Watch which offers numerous extremely useful tips and advice on how to protect yourself from some of the typical criminal activities.

Click Here to view the booklet on a separate screen page. It is possible to download a copy of the booklet to save as a file (once opened, click on tag at bottom right of screen). From this file you will be able to select the whole booklet for printing (36 pages !) or perhaps smaller extracts of text to support the work of NHW Coordinators, e.g., for use in village newsletters. They are currently looking into whether it will be possible to provide a hard copy for Coordinators.
