Neighbourhood watch

The basic aims of Neighbourhood Watch are to reduce opportunities for crime by deterring would-be thieves and vandals; to inform the police or the liaison person of any suspicious activity; to make everyone more aware of local crime problems and to be more security conscious about their own homes.

Neighbourhood Watch thus needs to be a two way process - we pass information to the police or local co-ordinator, and they pass information back to us. The quickest and most effective way of doing this is using email. Send us your email address using the Contact Us link, and your name will be added to the circulation list. Your address will not be accessible to any third party.

The area co-ordinator for Braintree district is Clive Stewart.
