National statistics show that if you live in a Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) area, your chance of being burgled reduces making it one of the most successful crime prevention initiatives in the country.
Aims of Neighbourhood Watch
The aim of NHW:
- Reduce crime and the opportunities for crime
- Help and reassure those who live in fear of crime
- Encourage communities to work closely together with local Police and Authorities
- Encourage community spirit.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is committed to supporting NHW and help is available whether you are looking to start a new group or re-launch an existing group. The Police and other agencies work closely with the council to support NHW groups.
