Thurrock Neighbourhood Watch wants you

Police are encouraging more people to sign up to Neighbourhood Watch schemes across the Thurrock district.

PCSOs have been out in the area, dropping off leaflets to residents to inform them about the scheme and give them information on how to join up.

Steven Greener, community safety manager for the Thurrock district, is keen to get more people involved in the successful scheme.

Steven said: “Neighbourhood Watch has proven to be effective time after time, so it is important that local people get involved to keep it going.  It is a great deterrent for criminals and provides an effective form of communication between communities and local police.

“Neighbourhood Watch is a very important concept. We are moving into a new generation of Thurrock, and with it we have a new generation of Neighbourhood Watch.  A key difference for us is the use of technology, as our website acts as a hub of information for coordinators and residents alike.”

“However, we still need more people to sign up to the scheme, so please get in contact if you are interested.”

Members receive regular updates on crime in their area, which they can pass onto existing and future member. This means that people involved in the scheme can gain a true reflection of crime, and help police and other local agencies to prioritise areas that are highlighted as a concern.

If you would like to get involved, please email Thurrock Watch administrator, Angela Pearson at angela.pearson@essex.pnn.police.uk or contact your local neighbourhood policing team by visiting My Neighbourhood.
