Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is a long established approach to community safety (40 years plus). Neighbours connect and support each other to tackle issues related to crime or safety in their local area. Neighbourhood Watch groups usually connect to the Police and other local support, and can do anything from tackling a local crime wave to watching out for vulnerable neighbours to simply organising social events to bring neighbours together.

You could join or start a Neighbourhood Watch group with your neighbours to help improve your area. In North East Lincolnshire Neighbourhood Watch is supported by VANEL. See for information and to make enquiries or speak to your local ward councillor or Neighbourhood Policing PC or PCSO.

Nationally Neighbourhood Watch info can be found at
