Neighbourhood Watch or Community Messaging?


Neighbourhood WatchOVER 70,000 Hertfordshire households are signed up to watch schemes across the county and there are over 10,000 active watches. There's also over 10,000 businesses and residents signed up to other schemes such as Business Watch and Dog Watch, Rural Watch.

Hertfordshire Constabulary actively supports these Neighbourhood Watch schemes which, together with police, make Hertfordshire a more hostile environment for criminals and a safe place for residents and businesses.

Crime is often lower where there are active Neighbourhood Watches and there are many other benefits including discounted home cover with some insurance companies.
