Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch

The neighbourhood watch scheme is about getting people together with their neighbours to take action to combat local crime.

Suffolk Neighbourhood Watch scheme helps to make our neighbourhoods more secure and our communities feel safer.

The main objectives of Neighbourhood watch are:

  • To prevent and reduce crime in our neighbourhoods
  • To help provide reassurance to people in our communities
  • To provide appropriate and up-to-date crime reduction advice
  • To encourage members of our communities to be alert and watchful in looking after themselves and others
  • To act as a channel of communication - passing on timely information from the police to the community and from the community to the police - to help prevent and detect crimes.

Your Community Watch Liaison Officer (CWLO) can give you details on how to join an existing scheme or help set up a new one if there isn't one in your area.

To speak with your local CWLO, telephone 101, the switchboard will ask you where you live and put you through to someone who can help.
