A Board of Trustees are the Governing Board that comprises of local representatives from Rural & Urban communities that runs the Association. President of the Association is RT Hon Lord Barry Jones and Chief Officer is Mrs Denise Edwards
The Association works closely with Community Safety Partners which include the Local Authority, Police, Fire service & other Third Sector Organisations.
Our service delivery complements and supports the Police & Crime Plan, as well as the crime reduction plans of Local Authorities, the Welsh Government & Home Office. The Association strives to help people to be safe & secure in their homes & environments that embrace diversity, race, faith and spans generations. We particularly support vulnerable & older people & groups as diverse as disadvantaged neighbourhoods & farming communities, through responding to people's concerns to enable them to feel safe, secure & respected through a number of watch schemes & crime prevention interventions.
Celebrating 30 years the Association has introduced our complimentary Neighbourhood Watch Crime Prevention 'home & personal safety' pack to help people, their family & homes to feel more safe. This is available to people who set up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme during our celebration year. It is not available for other types of watch schemes.
Staying safe together - Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest & most successful crime prevention initiatives ever, now involving millions of people around the Country. It is based on the simple idea that you & your neighbours can help to prevention, reduce crime & create a better place to live, work & play.
How does a Neighbourhood Watch scheme work?
By being a good neighbour, you can help to make your community more secure. You can do this in many ways, including:
- Looking out for your neighbours by keeping an eye on those who are older or vulnerable, watching out for your neighbour's homes while they are away & reporting any suspicious activity
- Receiving OWL crime & safety bulletins about what is happening locally & how you can help, for example look out for stolen property, find missing people, or identify suspects
- Receiving & sharing crime prevention advice to help keep you & your neighbours safe & your homes & property secure
- Being a part of a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme with your neighbours to work together to keep your street safe
