A Neighbourhood Watch can be an excellent way of not only co-ordinating activity around thereduction of crime and fear of crime, but also be a fantastic tool in generating community cohesion and spirit. Getting to know a few neighbours, sharing information and experiences and generally keeping a look out for one another need not be onerous or time consuming but does help develop trust and re-assurance.
The Sherwood and Mapperley Park Neighbourhood Watch has been operational for over ten years and is a collective of several smaller street or community watches and members of the community.
It has forged good links with local Police and various City Council Departments in an effort to curb crime and anti-social behaviour. The association has installed and maintains over thirty CCTV cameras throughout Sherwood and works closely with Nottinghamshire Police to provide evidence is incidents occur in Sherwood.
