                        Watch out!
Dear Sir
To the residents in Olney, Newport Pagnell and the villages.
We all want to live and work in a secure and safe community. There’s a better chance to keep it that way if you and your neighbours are Watch members.
1. It’s easy to register on www.ourwatch. This gives you free national membership to Neighbourhood Watch.
2. Registration includes receiving Police Alert messages. Alerts informs you about local crime, incidents, suspicions, missing people, etc. This is official communication (unlike most social media posts) and vital in telling us what’s going on locally and what to look out for. You can reply via email as well.
3. On the same website, click on Find my local scheme - enter your postcode, and you’ll
see local Neighbourhood Watch schemes.
Click on the scheme title to join.
4. The more members we have, the stronger our partnership with the Police. If there’s not a local scheme, then please apply to set one up. It’s not a big task but can make a big difference. I
and my Watch volunteers can help you.
5. Finally, and this is a clever bit, in your registration account. Under Your Information, you will see Community Interests: click on this and scroll down to see Other Community Contacts. You can tick here if you have CCTV, which includes video doorbells and/or Dashcams. So, if there’s an incident or crime at a local dwelling or business, the Police can comb the database to ping us a message for us to check our
CCTV/video footage.
So... why wouldn’t you join Neighbourhood Watch?
