A message from the Secretary of the Polegate Neighbourhood Watch Association
We now have a Neighbourhood Watch Association in Polegate and welcome all new members and co-ordinators. Please see our website, which is live from October 2018, where you will find details of membership, crime alerts, Police information, etc. If you do not have access to a computer, then please phone and leave a message to become a member. We will just need your name, address, telephone number and email address (if you have one). A welcome pack will be sent to you as soon as possible.
In Sussex, Neighbourhood Watch has the following main objectives:
- To reduce crime - By improving security, increasing vigilance, creating, and maintaining a caring community, and reducing opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness.
- To assist the Police in detecting crime - By promoting effective communication and the prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity.
- To reduce the fear of crime - By providing accurate information about risks, and by promoting a sense of security and community spirit, particularly amongst the more vulnerable.
- To improve police/community liaison - By providing effective means to notify Co-ordinators of local crime trends, and by members advising the police of incidents when they occur.
- To increase community safety - By providing safety information from other Partnership bodies such as Trading Standards and the Fire & Rescue Service.
- Some Insurance Companies offer reductions in premiums for:
