Home Watch logo

Norfolk is one of the safest places to live in the country, with a very low crime rate. Norfolk Constabulary is committed to continuing to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime throughout the county. However, the police cannot fight crime and address quality-of-life issues on their own; they need the help of the whole community.

Home Watch provides a way for local people to play an important part in making their communities safer and reducing crime.

Norfolk Home Watch Association in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary has prepared this introductory guide for people who are considering setting up a new scheme where they live and wish to find out a little more about Home Watch.

The guide sets out the objectives of Home Watch, it briefly explains what membership involves, whilst outlining the role of the Co-ordinator and explains what to do next if you want to start a scheme in your neighbourhood.
