NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH IN ESSEX
Neighbourhood Watch is a national movement with nearly 4.0 million members, where people come together to make their communities safer and stronger and encourage people to look out for each other.It involves working with Essex Police, other members of the Community Safety Partnerships in each local authority, voluntary organisations and, most importantly, with people who want to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.It aims to help people to protect themselves and their properties, to reduce crime and the fear of crime, and to reduce incidences of fire and environmental damage. We do this by taking preventative measures, by improving home security and safety awareness, by greater vigilance and by the timely and accurate reporting of incidents. We also aim to foster a community spirit with our neighbours.Essex Neighbourhood Watch Association represents the members and participants in the County of Essex and the unitary authorities in Southend and Thurrock. The Association provides support and a range of services to help in these matters. To achieve this we work with our partners in leading, directing, planning and supporting the future development of Neighbourhood Watch in Essex.
