Neighbourhood Watch works with the Police in the prevention and detection of crime. We encourage a two way flow of information regarding potential or actual crimes. As members of Neighbourhood Watch groups we look out for each other's interests whilst away from home and we look for and report suspicious incidents. Remember to report anything suspicious no matter how small it may seem, every little bit of information helps.
It is a group of individuals who, by their concern for each other and the area in which they live, voluntarily act in conjunction with the Police in the prevention and detection of crime.
The parts of East Leake that are covered by Neighbourhood Watch each have an Area Co-ordinator, who covers one or more streets, usually involving 10 to 20 houses or other premises.
Is where I live covered by Neighbourhood Watch?
If you are not covered maybe you would like to become the co-ordinator for you local area. The number of houses or other premises covered is usually 10 to 20. It's a useful role and not very demanding. One day you might come to regret that you did nothing about it!

How do we Operate?
Members of a group look out for each other while they are away from home. They look for and report suspicious incidents. They may receive information passed from the Co-ordinator about particular risks at any one time and about information that the Police are seeking.
