Neighbourhood Watch

With services stretched and staffing levels lower than desired, the police look to the local community for support to identify and record potential crime, vandalism and suspicious activities in villages. This is where the Neighbourhood Watch is of great assistance in monitoring and reporting crime.

Neighbourhood Watch started in the UK in 1982. There are now some 170,000 schemes running throughout the UK, covering six million households, which makes Neighbourhood Watch the largest voluntary movement in the country.

Cosgrove (S60) NHW is our village's Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
All members of Cosgrove's community are invited to join the scheme and be part of a group of people who care about our village.
Members of the scheme are empowered to note suspicious behaviour or events and can use the link below to report non serious crime on the Northamptonshire website, which is monitored daily, seven days each week. Where a crime is in progress or there's a threat to anyone, dial 112 or 999 and ask for the police.
By registering with our scheme you will receive emailed notifications of crime being committed in South Northamptonshire, as well as information from Cosgrove’s NHW co-ordinator.

What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention initiatives ever. Behind it lies a simple idea, and a central value shared by millions of people around the country.

Joining with your neighbours to observe and report any events that appear suspicious can help the police to solve crime. Everyone knows that the police are there to fight crime, but they need our help to do an effective job. Neighbourhood Watch is all about an active partnership with the police. Neighbourhood Watch schemes can:

  • Cut crime and the opportunities for crime
  • Help and reassure those who live in the area
  • Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities
  • Create better places in which to live, work & play
