Scheme information The scheme includes the part of Britten's Hill either side of my house, all of Britten's Close, all of The Brittens and 2 overlooking houses in Gregory's Tyning.
My reason for starting the scheme was that when I was burgled in Sept 2000 and I called the Police I was concerned when they explained their limitations on prosecuting and convicting burglars and the prevention of further crime. Accordingly I decided that an element of self help was necessary to educate and encourage greater awareness and observation amongst my neighbours. With only 2 exceptions from the 26 neighbouring householdsI consulted everyone agreed. One further household joined subsequently.
Our priorities are to encourage good home security measures, awareness, observation and co-operation to prevent crime in our area.
