Sutton cum Lound Neighbourhood Watch aims to make sure that no one has to feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live. It’s about people looking out for each other, crossing barriers of age, race and background to create strong, cohesive communities that benefit everyone.
As an organisation we endeavour to be the eyes and ears of the community. Nationally, it has been shown that Neighbourhood Watch areas are far less likely to be targeted by criminals.
Every Neighbourhood Watch committee member in Sutton is a volunteer – we have no staff. We are a not-for-profit organisation, non-party in politics, and operate an equal opportunities and non-discriminatory policy. Anybody can join our group, regardless of their background, and membership is free.
A Neighbourhood Watch scheme is a group of neighbours who want to help reduce crime and the fear of crime in their area. They will look out for each other and help build a caring community. We work within our community but are supported by outside groups in order that experience and issues that affect us all are shared. In particular we are members of the Neighbourhood Alert Scheme the Products and Features of which are available here. We encourage those of our members who have internet access to sign up to receive Alerts in order to share issues in a timely manner.
