What do I need to say when I report a crime ?

When you report a crime/incident – insist on a log number.

NEVER Think that a crime/incident is too insignificant to report – there may have been several others of the same type and your information may help the police to complete the puzzle.  The more people who ring in about a particular crime/incident will  help your road/area to become a crime hotspot which will receive extra policing  for a period of time.

AS A NW MEMBER You are recognised as  a serious source of information by the police so state your name and the fact that you are a member of the NW.

What are the duties and advantages of becoming a Street and Area Co-ordinators ?


How is Neighbourhood Watch funded ?

Hertsmere Borough NW is funded by Hertsmere Borough Council in the amount of £1500 per annum so money is available for room hire for launches, meetings etc and expenses incurred by co-ordinators who are required to supply invoices.  Money is also available to assist the old and vulnerable by supplying them with security equipment free of charge.  Details are put before the Committee, discussed and decision taken.

How do I start a watch in my road ?

Please contact Derrick Sweeney NHW Liaison Officer on 01707 806650.  

What do I do If I am a victim of a crime or incident ?

If this is an emergency, with the culprit still in the area, phone 999, or non-emergency phone 0845 33 00 222

Then contact the Area Co-ordinator or if there isn’t one circulate the details to all co-ordinators  in your road for distribution

Then contact your Ward PC so he/she is made aware and can engage the necessary Agencies ie. Victim Support, Youth Action Worker, ASBO Officer, Dog warden, Environmental Health etc. etc.
