Teignmouth Close and Buckfast Close Neighbourhood Watch

Scheme information

Scheme started in 1991, with the emphasis more on befriending than on crime prevention. Various changes since then and we need updating. Households have been registered on several occasions, but maybe with two different national schemes, which needs sorting out. In the meantime we have kept regular annual meetings, the last one last night, sent out crime warnings as appropriate and worked for improving the neighbourhood and keeping vital services, such as buses when under threat. Police have attended some meetings, but no regular input for some years, with crime maps, when consulted, not up to date. I shall get in contact with Mrs. Patel on Hatherleigh Road for consultation.
