Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership between local communities, Police and Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs). Its aim is to help people protect themselves and their property, and to reduce the fear of crime.
There is more to Neighbourhood Watch than protecting homes and property. By working together, neighbours can help to reduce all sorts of crimes, for example, burglary. Neighbourhood Watch Schemes can help improve the local environment and may help reduce levels of antisocial behaviour.Get Involved
Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators act as a vital link between the Limewood Community in Banbridge and local police by acting as the first point of contact.
Everyone within a Neighbourhood Watch scheme plays an important part in making their neighbourhood a safer, more friendly and pleasant place to live.
One of the most important things members do is to look out for activity in their neighbourhood that seems unusual or suspicious. Any information may help the police.
A greater awareness of crime and vigilance by the residents of Limewood helps to stop burglaries and anti-social behaviour.
Neighbourhood Watch schemes have been proven to improve the environment we live in, making our homes safer and happier.
Schemes promote confidence within communities that something positive is being done to prevent local crime and improve the quality of life in the area.
