​Neighbourhood Watch is the largest community safety organisation in the country with an estimated 8 million members. The scheme was originally set up to help reduce household burglary, but now also deals with anti-social behaviour and environmental crime like graffiti and fly-tipping.

 

How the scheme helps community safety

Living in a Neighbourhood Watch area can help reduce crime and the fear of crime by:

  • improving home security
  • encouraging greater vigilance
  • ensuring suspicious incidents are reported to the police
  • fostering a community spirit

 

Merton Neighbourhood Watch

Merton Neighbourhood Watch is managed by the Merton Neighbourhood Watch Association which is made of volunteer Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators. They work in partnership with Merton Police and Merton Council who provide an officer who manages the scheme.
