Scheme informationThis neighbourhood watch was started when the level of petty crime, drug dealing and use, as well as occasional more serious crime caused the neighbours to meet with the local Police to make them aware of the problems we face. The area is next to Hornchurch Country Park and as such is exposed to vandalism, it is also very quiet at night which makes it ideal for drug related matters and for sexual activities. The vandalism has much reduced recently although the other problems remain. These issues will not go away unless we keep a constant eye out for them and report them to our Police contacts as necessary. The people in this area do not speak to each other much so the chances of coordinated action are slim but having a neighbourhood watch scheme is better than not having one. Also bear in mind that if we don't tell the Police what is going on, the Police don't know what is going on!
