Your Local Scheme
I have run Westleton NHW for 4 years and was asked by the Village Council to start it. We have 5 areas in the village each with a local street co-ordinator and maintain a presence on the village website and circulate newsletter and crime prevention advice on it. I also post weekly NHW newsletters at the village ship and hall and by email tio 15 interseted people and to the village shop and two pubs. On the occasion that a crime is common knowledge the complainant is visited and any support that is needed is given. Vacant empty houses are regularly checked and any crime intelligence is passed to 101. I also circulate Trading Standards Newsletters weekly.
