Scheme information

I foiled 2 burglaries on my street and hence we decided to start the NHW. We are a close knit friendly bunch on our road and look out for each other. If someone goes away on holiday they let their neighbours know so that everyone keep a close eye. We are also aware of strange cars and unknown registration numbers. We have some elderly and retired people living on the road which is excellent as it deters burglars and other opportunistic people, as they are aware of people activity in the street at all times. When any of the residents are on hoilday we make sure we use their dustbins so that it doesn't appear like the house is unoccupied. I have been the scheme co-ordinator for 3 years.
