Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

I was appointed Inveresk Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator back in September 2010. At that time I attended The Association of Scottish Neighbourhood Watches AGM in an attempt to educate myself of the facilities and contact points available to our community. The aim “to promote good citizenship and greater public participation in the prevention and solution of crime so that effective liaison between police and public can be achieved in order to promote the efficiency of the police in all Scottish police areas”

With that in mind I approached four other residents of Inveresk splitting our Village up into more manageable areas, hopefully giving residents a direct contact point within closer proximity where information (newsletters, security advice etc) can be sent, delivered or forwarded electronically. By hand delivered letter we invited every resident to take advantage of this facility by registering their e-mail address to the co-ordinator within the catchment area. Here we are Spring, 2015, having just passed the magical number of 200 houses in the Village and less than a third of residents appear to have taken advantage of this most worthwhile facility.
