Rushcliffe Borough Council encouraging people to join local Neighbourhood Watch scheme




People are being invited to do their bit to help keep their local area safe.

Rushcliffe Borough Council wants people to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme to promote safety and reduce crime in and around their towns and villages.

The role involves passing on crime prevention advice, such as not opening doors to strangers, keeping an eye on vulnerable people and being in contact with Nottinghamshire Police and the borough council to pass on concerns.

Cabinet portfolio holder for environment and safety, Rob Inglis, said: “Joining a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is a fantastic way to become more engaged in your community and receive support and advice on the latest community safety talking points.

“Getting involved doesn’t necessarily mean you need to co-ordinate local efforts, it can simply involve keeping up to date on crime prevention advice with regular contact with your local police force and the Borough Council.”
