Neighbourhood Watch Scheme Set Up In Northleach
Residents of Northleach have teamed up with police to start their own Neighbourhood Watch (NW) group in the Market Place area of the town.
The scheme, which encourages local people to work together with police to detect and deter crime, was officially launched at the start of December.
Members of the scheme will liaise closely with police and Police Community Support Officers and act as a point of contact between officers and the wider community.
In future, police warnings and appeals will be sent to NW co-ordinators in the group, who will then pass on the information to a network of local households.
PCSO Mark Williams, who has been instrumental in establishing this new NW scheme in Northleach, said: "The scheme has been very effective in other Cotswold communities and we're hoping it will prove to be just as useful in Northleach.
"The scheme helps police to prevent residents from becoming victims of crime by the rapid passing of information through the NW network. Equally, the network is a useful tool for local people to tell police of anything suspicious taking place in their area."
