Your Local Scheme
I have been Coordinator for just a few months & so am in the very early stages of setting up a scheme. However, in the mean time I've kept an eye on our local police website & talked to our PCSOs, to gather information on local crime. I had a Neighbourhood Watch Area notice put up and have used a photo of that to make some headed paper. When ever I get relevant information on our local crime I use write a quick letter with those detail and deliver one to every house I cover. As this is a council owned area, I also let my neighbours know when I've approached the police or council about local problems in order to keep them informed. Currently, I do this at my own cost. The area I cover is a group of 3 small blocks of flats and I hope to get two people from each block, to form a committee and, due to some significant positive results of NW coordinator action, most of my neighbours say they will join the scheme.
