Are you missing out?

Neighbourhood Watch may be the answer you are looking for.

Are you concerned about crime locally?
Have you got elderly or vulnerable neighbours?
Have you taken steps to make your home secure?
Do you have concerns about antisocial behaviour or domestic violence in your locality?
Do local traffic issues worry you?
Would you like to know more about recent developments in home
security?

Neighbourhood Watch may be the answer you are looking for.

If you belong to a scheme you could:

    • receive regular updates from the police about local incidents
    • prevent crime through additional security
    • reduce opportunities for crime through increased awareness
    • be able to voice local concerns and problems
    • buy SmartWater security marking with an 80% reduction in price
    • reduce your household insurance (with participating insurance companies)
