Street Watch is about local residents promoting good citizenship and supporting a better neighbourhood by patrolling their own streets. Street Watch provide visible reassurance and appropriately engage in local issues that matter and have a significant and positive impact on the quality of life issues within their communities.
Street watch is run by local residents and is fully supported by Bedfordshire Police.
The purpose of Street Watch is to:
- prevent crime by increasing visibility and maintaining a caring and cohesive community
- assist the police by promoting effective communication and the prompt reporting of activity
- increase feelings of safety by promoting a sense of security and community spirit
By joining Street Watch you will provide visible reassurance, reduce crime and disorder and provide a stronger community liaison with your local police community team. All we ask is that you commit two hours a month at time to suit you. Full training is provided.
