The principle is simple. Through communication and cooperation, neighbours work together to protect their community and report suspicious people and incidents to the police.
Neighbourhood Watch schemes help to develop a greater shared awareness between police and local residents of a community's problems. They also give local people a better understanding of the practical steps that can be taken to tackle problems - either through greater vigilance, or crime prevention measures.
