The joint Hatton Station, Shrewley and Little Shrewley Neighbourhood Watch is a voluntary
organisation committed to working with you and your neighbours, providing information
and coordination in support of a safe and secure environment for individuals and
communities within the area, and giving a voice to local residents on the issues
that matter to our community.
We work closely with the Parish Council, the local Warwickshire Rural West Police
Team, and sister schemes in neighbouring village communities to focus on reducing
crime and anti-social behaviour, and on practical ways to improve our protection
and safety for greater security in our homes and communities.
The traditional role and scope of Neighbourhood Watch has changed and a wider and
more inclusive email support network has been established to collectively meet new
Co-ordinators throughout Shrewley Parish pass on to their members the police newsletters
and general updates in order to:
Reduce crime – by improving security, increasing vigilance, reducing crime by increasing
the awareness of crime prevention methods.
To assist the police in detecting crime – by promoting effective communication
and the prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity.
To reduce the fear of crime – promoting a sense of security and community spirit
especially amongst the more vulnerable.
To improve police/community liaison – by providing effective means to notify Co-ordinators
of local crime trends and by members advising the police of incidents when they occur.
Members can display window stickers to promote the scheme to remind everybody there
is a very active scheme in place in this parish.
The co-ordinators continue to do a great job, but they need your help to recruit
more members. If anybody is not a member and would like to be a member it is very
quick and easy to join. For more information please contact:
The National Neighbourhood & Home Watch website also contains useful information.
