Your Local Scheme
Sutton neighborhood watch
A simple passing-on of local information, with contacts to and from the police, in order to keep the area informed of potential problems. We already look out for each other, and this is just formalising the care within our community.
- the scheme doesn't have a website
I recently undertook a local search, to identify all the houses in our postcode area, and to ensure we all knew where everyone was. This was primarily to ensure we could all give accurate directions for such as ambulances and police, where time could well be of vital importance. Having done this, we each found that we did not know all of the people in the area, and the information was useful. The idea of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme was mooted,chiefly to formalise the care and observation already within the patch, and to be kept abreast of policing concerns in the area.
