Is Neighbourhood Watch still alive?



Neighbourhood Watch is a vibrant and active organisation in 2016.

Nottinghamshire Neighbourhood Watch (aka NottsWatch) is fully recognised by Nottinghamshire Police and the Home Office in both Nottingham City and County wide. This is a strong working relationship which jointly seeks to keep all of our neighbourhoods safe and build community relations.

Would you like to join in or set up a scheme in your area?

Funding and guidance available to support setting up new County schemes.

Thanks to the contribution from Members of the Community Safety Committee of Nottinghamshire County Council in supporting the growth of NHW across the County, and the financial grant of £10,500 spearheaded by the Committee’s Chairman Councillor Glynn Gilfoyle, there is currently funding to support the setting up of new schemes throughout the county.

All coordinators of registered schemes are covered by indemnity insurance up to £10 million.

So what does the Neighbourhood Watch do?

NHW schemes can reduce crime and the fear of crime

The NHW movement can use its capable volunteers to strengthen & assist the Police and other partners in order to prevent and reduce crime & the fear of crime.

NHW schemes can improve community cohesion

Neighbourhood Watch schemes can also promote neighbourliness, reducing the impacts of crime and loneliness that particularly affect the more vulnerable people in our society.

Well structured NHW movement.

Many NHW Associations and individual schemes within the City & County are members of NottsWatch, our umbrella support group, and are well established throughout the region. This structure gives a tremendous pool of experience and guidance for the benefit of residents within each individual NHW scheme.
How does it actually happen?

Members can be up dated at resident meetings and/or via electronic communication.
By registerinFacebook-logo-ICON-02g at, you can receive free alerts via email and messages can be sent to the police and other scheme members.
