West Berkshire Neighbourhood Watch

"Working in partnership to prevent crime & vandalism, reduce fear of crime, improve quality of life"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Neighbourhood Watch was started in the United Kingdom in 1982 and was based on the United States model.  The original was to reduce household burglary.  Much has happened since the early days in 1982.  Neighbourhood Watch tackles matters that affect people's quality of life, such as, rogue traders and scammers, cybercrime, poor street lighting, abandoned vehicles, fly tipping, graffiti and anti social behaviour.

Neighbourhood Watch has and continues to be, a very effective example of communities working in partnership to prevent crime and vandalism, reduce fear of crime and improve quality of life.

The continued success of Neighbourhood Watch  is dependent on coordinators who give of their time and commitment voluntarily in working with the police and to assist their neighbourhoods in tackling crime.  Currently 557 schemes are running in West Berkshire.

It is a good way to get to know your neighbours, you can help one another, especially the elderly, and by removing mail, putting lights on and pulling curtains when neighbours are away.  This makes residents feel secure knowing that neighbours are keeping an eye on their property and makes them aware to report anything suspicious and watch their security.
