Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is a way in which communities can help themselves to stay safe and keep crime down.
Neighbourhood Watch schemes are groups of volunteers who work in partnership with the Police and the local council.
They distribute advice on security and safety within a designated area and help to make sure that elderly or vulnerable members of the community aren’t targets for criminals. They also gather information which can help Police tackle local problems as well as alert local people when there is a particular crime problem in the area.

Neighbourhood Watch

The Canterbury and District Neighbourhood Watch Association was formed in 1995. The association was set up to support and co-ordinate the activities of schemes in the Canterbury area and to work closely with the Police and other agencies.
