Neighbourhood Watch

Concerned about crime?

The Parish Council would like to hear from any resident interested in helping to operate a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

In the past, a scheme has operated to share information about actual crimes or suspicious occurrences that are either Hail Weston-specific (e.g. a suspicious vehicle observed by a member of the scheme) or local (such as notices coming from Cambs police). It has been brought to the Council’s attention that the number of volunteers operating the scheme has dwindled and that there is currently no central coordinator. With all the other initiatives currently underway in Hail Weston, the Parish Council does not have the resources to run a Neighbourhood Watch scheme without new volunteers. Responses to last year’s Community Led Plan questionnaire showed that around a third of respondents were members of Neighbourhood Watch and more were interested in joining, so if you’d like the scheme to continue and might be interested in volunteering your time to make that happen, please get in touch (janesugars1@gmail.com). Note that going forward a scheme could either retain the same format or use a new model.
