Your local scheme
Three Rivers Neighbourhood Watch, working alongside Hertfordshire Constabulary offer advice, consulting and training in all matters relating to crime prevention, including setting up and running a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
We have the highest district membership within Hertfordshire (59% of all households) and have most roads covered with a Watch scheme. We encourage neighbours to work together to keep residents safe. We work alongside a number of other community agencies (e.g. Trading Standards, Age UK, Mind) and have worked hard to reach our elderly residents across the District.
Online Watch Link (OWL)
Neighbourhood Watch (NhW) in Hertfordshire uses OWL to send out emails containing up-to-date information about local crime trends, crime prevention advice and community events. The messages come from the constabulary and from Neighbourhood Watch coordinators, as and when there is something to report. They are usually specific to your locality but occasionally included information from a wider area.
Sign up to this service today at www.owl.co.uk - It only takes a minute and is completely free.
Messages are sent by email, or phone and in certain cases SMS texts.
The emails keep you in touch with local events in your community news about your local police team and crime prevention advice.
To receive the messages, you must be living or working with a registered postal address in Hertfordshire, as the system is based on postal addresses.
