Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most successful crime prevention initiatives ever. It is based on the simple idea that you and your neighbours can help to reduce crime and create a better place to live, work and play.

As a good neighbour, you can help others in your street by:

  • Looking out for your neighbours, their homes and property, checking in on those who may be vulnerable, and reporting anything suspicious to police.
  • Receiving our regular Herts Connected updates about what is happening locally and how you can help.
  • Sharing our alerts and advice to help keep you and your neighbours safe.
  • Working with your neighbours to keep your street safe.
