Neighbourhood Watch encourages neighbours to get together, share information and prevent crime in their local community.
Representatives from pubs meet regularly to discuss problems or incidents that have happened on a licensed premise. The network is also used to share information about anyone banned from a licensed premise in the area and is a scheme is supported by the police and council.
Shops in this scheme are given a radio and are able to communicate with other shop owners, the police and the CCTV control room, so that they can report crimes taking place, suspicious behaviour or share intelligence.
This scheme builds links with stables and the police to increase the reporting of crimes relating to equestrianism and share intelligence.
This scheme encourages residents who walk their pets to report any suspicious behaviour they may see while out and about.
