Lenton Abbey Neighbourhood Watch Schemes

Neighbourhood Watch street schemes in the Lenton Abbey area will be supported by the Wollaton and Lenton Abbey Neighbourhood Watch Association, the City of Nottingham Neighbourhood Watch Council, Nottinghamshire Police and the Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership.

Schemes can vary in size. A volunteer Co-ordinator liaises with the Police and the Local Association, they receive information and messages to keep them in touch with activities, and some may have marker kits, alarms and other security items, which are available to members. It must be recognised that the street scheme is a community initiative, which is supported by the various groups above and the Police, but not run by them. So success depends on what you 'our' members make of it.

The Police and The Local Association cannot deal with the problems and issues arising from crime and anti-social behaviour alone; they need the help of the whole community within Lenton Abbey. Neighbourhood Watch provides a way for local people to play an important part in addressing this balance and making their communities safer.

Neighbourhood Watch Street Co-ordinator
The role of the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator is to set up and/or maintain a Neighbourhood Watch scheme within Lenton Abbey. You will need to contact Wollaton and Lenton Abbey Neighbourhood Watch Association to clarify what is involved and the initial steps to take. Whilst each Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator may develop their own specific procedures, the following are suggested as the main duties which you may choose to manage.

  • Encourage vigilance among street scheme members and actively encourage the early reporting of suspicious incidents and anti-social behaviour to The Police, using this website.
  • Receive crime information from the Lenton Abbey Neighbourhood Watch website and distribute these messages to the street scheme members.
  • Encourage street scheme members to be aware of and put into practise crime prevention measures, such as property marking and security devices.
  • Keep a check on vulnerable households and provide advice to members about dealing with callers at the door.
  • Circulate newsletters and other relevant information to your street scheme members.
  • Welcome newcomers to the neighbourhood/area and invite them to be part of your scheme.
  • Supply each street scheme member with Neighbourhood Watch and crime prevention literature, such as Neighbourhood Watch window stickers and incident report cards.

If you are interested in setting up a scheme or would simply like more information to consider, please contact your local Co-ordinator or simply upgrade your account to a full scheme when logged in.
