Crime Prevention Advice
Most burglars are opportunists - they look for an open window, an unlocked gate, a ladder - in fact, an easy way of getting into your home. If you take crime prevention seriously and put into practice the measures below, you may be saved the stress and heartache of having your home ransacked.
How to set up a "Neighbourhood Watch" Scheme
What is a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?
Neighbourhood Watch is a safety organisation designed to get households in a neighbourhood to liaise with the local police about ways to decrease crime in the neighbourhood and build trust with other residents in the area. The households are advised on crime prevention methods and reporting any suspicious activity to the police - essentially everyone in the neighbourhood looks out for one another.
How do I set up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme?
If you would like to set up a neighbourhood watch scheme, your first port of call should be your local police station where you will need to speak to the Crime Prevention Officer, who will let you know what your job will involve. You will become the resident coordinator and receive information from the police, together with practical help in the form of security items, such as UV marker pens, advice on crime prevention and information leaflets. (With UV marker pens, you write your postcode and house number on your possessions - this only shows up under a UV light, which police use routinely when examining stolen goods.)
