Four new Homewatch schemes in Formby, can you help make a positive difference to your community?

Four new Homewatch Schemes were launched in Formby last month as residents of the Orchid Meadow estate protect each other’s security.

Three of the new Leaders are seen in the above photo with a representative of the Community Police Team and the Homewatch Association Coordinator, receiving the Homewatch signs generously donated by Greenbelt, the company managing the estate.

As these new Schemes had their Start-ups, there are four other existing Schemes that have lost their Leaders in the recent past and are under threat of being closed if no volunteers step forward to take over and keep them going.

It takes very little effort by groups of neighbours to make a substantial difference to the safety of their community – are you in a Homewatch Scheme?

Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership where people come together to make their communities safer and make their neighbourhoods better places to live. It aims to help people protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit.

Merseyside Police have a long-standing partnership with local Neighbourhood Watch Schemes with almost 2000 schemes across the region. We recognise that these schemes play a vital role in detecting and preventing crime, increasing community safety and enhancing communication between the police and the communities of Merseyside.

Merseyside Police spokesperson said: "Merseyside Police supports the Neighbourhood movement, actively engaging with scheme leaders and committees. Each scheme has a nominated police point of contact within their neighbourhood, who has responsibility for engaging with scheme leaders, sharing information and crime prevention advice. We also support those wishing to set up new schemes, providing regular, structured help and guidance to help them become established and provide a specific corporate point of contact for advice and support."

Merseyside's Neighbourhood Watch has 4 main objectives:

  • Cut crime and the opportunities for crime and anti-social behaviour by improving security, increasing vigilance and increasing crime prevention awareness

  • To help detect crime by promoting prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity and encourage effective communication.

  • Provide reassurance to local residents and reduce the fear of crimeand anti-social behaviour by empowering and encouraging communities to take ownership of local issues

  • Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities by helping to establish Community Spirit and improve police/community liaison
