Do I live in a Neighbourhood Watch area?

  • First of all, check to see if there is a Neighbourhood Watch in your area already.  There may be a scheme that covers your house, or one nearby that you could join up with.
  • Look up www.neighbourhoodwatchscotland.co.uk
  • Use the Scheme Finder tool to see what's in your area. It shows you Neighbourhood Watch areas already established and in operation 1,2,5,and 10 miles from your postcode. You can also contact the co-coordinator of existing schemes or apply to join them.

I don't live in a Neighbourhood Watch area

If there's no Neighbourhood Watch near you, you might consider starting your own.  There are details on the web page to tell you how to go about it.
