Neighbourhood Watch and Allotment Watch
Neighbourhood Watch and Allotment Watch schemes are groups of volunteers who work with the police and the local council in the battle against crime. They distribute advice on security and safety in a specific area and make sure elderly or vulnerable people aren’t targets for criminals. If you want to help and get involved but don’t know if your area has a scheme then contact your local authority Safe Communities Team.
The public also have a role to play by calling Humberside Police if they have information about people responsible for thefts or handling stolen goods. They should call 999 in an emergency, 101 in a non-emergency or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.Leave a comment
