The basic principle of Neighbourhood Watch is to be aware during our daily routine and make note of anything suspicious in our area. If you are suspicious of an incident or vehicle, inform the police or a co-ordinator immediately, noting registration number of vehicle and number / description of occupants. The police will then take any action they think appropriate and the co-ordinator will inform other members in the area.
