Over the years since its foundation in 1982, Neighbourhood Watch has become the largest voluntary movement in the UK. There are currently some 170,000 schemes running throughout the country, one of which is in King’s Sutton. Fortunately, our village experiences relatively low levels of crime and the local Neighbourhood Watch scheme was set up with the intention of bringing those crime levels down still further, reassuring people (particularly the elderly) and developing a closer community.
King’s Sutton’s Neighbourhood Watch group holds meetings with local crime prevention officers and organises events with specialist speakers on a regular basis. The group works closely with the local police to tackle those crimes that most affect our neighbourhood.
The more people who are active and committed to the group, the more effective we can be. If you are interested in getting involved, please use the contact details on this page to get in touch with the King’s Sutton scheme’s co-ordinator, John Bell.
