Home watch

Join a Home Watch scheme

If you are interested in joining or starting a Home Watch scheme please ring 0161 856 8480 and speak to the local Home Watch Administrator.

Benefits of joining a Home Watch scheme are:

  • It helps you make closer links between neighbours, the community and the police.
  • It improves your awareness of crime and makes you less likely to become a victim.

Help us help you!

We're working with the police, together with over 30 local agencies to reduce crime in the borough. But we cannot succeed on our own - we need your support.

Most crime is opportunist, committed on the spur of the moment or when a car or a house is left unlocked. Home Watch schemes help to reduce local crimes such as burglary, vandalism, car thefts and thefts from cars by encouraging neighbours and communities to look out for one another.

You have the power

Whatever the problem in your neighbourhood, you have the power to do something about it and when several people act as a group it becomes much easier.

There is no restriction to the number of houses involved in the scheme, so get together with your neighbours and make your community safer.
