Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood watch logoBenefits of our Neighbourhood Watch

  • Knowing what to do when crime or other emergencies occur
  • Finding ways to make our community safer
  • Promoting awareness to others who may need help

Neighbourhood Watch is not about being a hero, being nosy, becoming a vigilante or working for the police. Our aim is to reduce crime.
Being part of an active community helps to deter criminals.
We are in regular contact with the Kent police so minor problems can be dealt with before they develop. The police also inform us of crimes committed in the area.
We have 20 co-ordinators around Stone and Ebony.
