Neighbourhood Watch has a great reputation as a successful crime prevention organisation.
The joint Hatton Station, Shrewley and Little Shrewley Neighbourhood Watch works
closely with the Parish Council and the local Warwickshire Rural West Police Team
to focus on practical ways to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, and to improve
our protection and safety for greater security.
Monthly police newsletters and general updates are passed on by email to members
by coordinators throughout the Parish to keep everyone aware of current issues like
internet and telephone-based fraud, and local issues such as burglary, car crime
and thefts from sheds and outbuildings.
This helps to:
Reduce crime – by improving security, increasing vigilance, reducing crime by increasing
the awareness of crime prevention methods
Assist the police in detecting crime – by promoting effective communication and
the prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity
Reduce the fear of crime – promoting a sense of security and community spirit especially
amongst the more vulnerable
Improve police/community liaison – by providing effective means to notify coordinators
of local crime trends and by members advising the police of incidents when they occur
Window stickers can be displayed to promote the scheme to remind everybody there
is a very active scheme in place in this parish.
Although we may not be particularly visible, we are not standing still and our local
NW scheme is steadily growing in membership.
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.
