Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership of people coming together to make their communities safer. It involves the Police, Community Safety departments of local authorities, other voluntary organisations and, above all, individuals and families who want to make their neighbourhoods better places to live. It aims to help people protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit.
Sutton Neighbourhood Watch, which is a registered charity, was created in 2000 to help develop, coordinate and expand Neighbourhood Watch across the borough of Sutton. It is non-party-political, non-sectarian, is a community initiative supported by the police but not run by them, so success depends on what our members make of it. Although independent, we work in partnership with the police, residents’ associations, local authorities and other agencies to reduce crime and disorder. In short, to help make Sutton a safer and better place to live, work and raise our children.
