New: The online version of Neighbourhood Watch
Alongside Neighbourhood Watch, residents can join an interactive Online Watch Link system (OWL).
OWL allows Neighbourhood Watch members to join an online community and receive timely alerts and crime prevention advice from their local police force.
To find out more on what’s happening in our area and keep yourself updated, you can register yourself at www.owl.co.uk
OWL was featured in Crimewatch, outlining what it has done for Gwent.
Living Here: Safer Neighbourhoods scheme
Safer Neighbourhoods is a truly local policing style: local people working with local police and partners to identify and tackle issues of concern in their neighbourhood.
How does Safer Neighbourhoods work?
Safer Neighbourhoods teams are dedicated to the needs of each specific neighbourhood, with the policing priorities for that area decided in partnership with local stakeholders – the public, crime and disorder reduction partnerships (CDRPs), local authorities and other local organisations.
Officers are trained to communicate with a wide range of people, communities and partners, to tackle and solve community problems. Experience suggests these are most likely to be quality-of-life issues, such as anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, abandoned cars and graffiti.
Where are Safer Neighbourhoods teams based?
Sometimes teams are based at local police stations. Others work from kiosks, partnership offices, schools and hospitals – even places of worship.
