THE ROLE OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH CO-ORDINATOR

The job of Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator is essentially a voluntary one and the police service would not seek to impose rigid codes of practice upon it. The list below is offered as a guide to what a Co-ordinator should seek to achieve. Some will achieve more, others less, but we all work towards the same goal
REDUCED CRIME IN OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS.

It should be emphasised that the list of objectives below is in no way definitive

A NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH CO-ORDINATOR SHOULD SEEK:

1.To know and be known by members of your group

2.To act as a point of contact between your group and the police service

3.To assist your group to recognise where opportunities for crime exist in your area and how to reduce them

4.To be prepared to receive and pass information from the police service and to feed back information from your group

5.To encourage your members to be aware of suspicious occurrences in your area and to report them promptly to the police

6.To encourage regular contact between members of your group in order to increase the amount of local knowledge available to them

7.To get to know the members of your local policing team and encourage their involvement in your group
