Alert message sent 09/09/2020 14:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

You may know me as a Parish Councillor on Blackbird Leys Parish Council or the Facebook I moderate for Blackbird Leys Community Facebook Group

I have been told that many residents in the Leys do not know what is expected of a member or Coordinator and what is the point of joining if you already receiving Alerts. Many incidents and reported crimes do not show on the Alert and you will continue to receive the Alerts. There is more information and help you can receive as a member.  An incident can be shared (anonymously) to others in your area eg. tampering with cars, suspicious and antisocial behaviour.The Leys has a high crime rate with the lowest number of Neighbourhood Watch members across Oxford. 

Membership is free and you receive special discounts as a valued member of your community. Being a member takes little time and effort and can make a difference to keeping your neighbourhood safe. 

To become a Neighbourhood Watch member or Coordinator please join via your account, reply to this Alert message or email for a membership form.

Neighbourhood Watch is the largest voluntary organisation for crime prevention in England and Wales but it is more about your neighbourhood and your community. We care about the elderly and vulnerable in our neighbourhood. We report crimes and suspicions to the police or Crimestoppers, knowing that reporting may stop further crimes for ourselves or our neighbours. We are helping ourselves and others. We can show we are a Watcher by having a window sticker but also may prefer not to be known publicly. 

An active Neighbourhood Watch encourages community spirit and good communication.

As a member of Neighbourhood Watch if you have an incident:

Contact the police with details of the incident, by ringing 101 if the incident has happened, or 999 if the incident is happening immediately.

Contact your Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator.
The Coordinator will then alert the other members of the scheme to make them aware and possibly receive  more information that would be useful for the police making enquiries.

At no time will the Coordinator give out the name, address or contact details of the person who has had the incident to the other members
