Humber Watch

 

The Humber Watch Association is working to promote Winter Safety this year, please read the following document and be safe when you celebrate…

Merry Christmas!

Organisations that support Neighbourhood Watch Groups in the Humberside Police area have come together to form a Humber Watch Association.

This will allow each organisation – in Hull (Neighbourhood Network), East Yorkshire (East Riding of Yorkshire Council), North Lincolnshire (North Lincolnshire Council) and North East Lincolnshire (VANEL) – to come together in sharing good practice; developing a collective approach to addressing issues affecting local Neighbourhood Watch Groups; improving possible access to funding and developing long term strategies to increase wider community participation across the region.

The formation of a Humber Watch Association will help them to develop more effective working with the police and for strategies to be aligned to keep communities safe and involve the public in creating safer neighbourhoods.

The constituted association will also allow the community representatives to proactively contribute to both national and local events promoting Neighbourhood Watch, encouraging both existing new schemes and encouraging new growth. Whilst assisting each area in coordinating events during national Neighbourhood Watch week and times of the year when community safety messages are appropriate or to tackle crime trends.

The association is open to anyone who is currently a registered Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator. We welcome anyone who would like to contribute to a Humber wide group and has a forward thinking approach. We are also wanting to hear from Neighbourhood Watch coordinators to find out the type of issues that communities are facing and would like to look at different approaches to solve these issues across the Humberside area.
