Neighbourhood Watch

Join Neighbourhood Watch in Leicestershire (

Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is one of the most popular and successful crime prevention schemes and is built on the simple idea that by getting together with your neighbours, you can take positive action to help cut local crime. Melton Mowbray has the largest number of Neighbourhood Watch members in any one postcode area in the United Kingdom.

Since October 2010, when the active membership was only six, there has been a huge growth in membership numbers, which now include nearly 400 streets and 430 coordinators.

Neighbourhood Watch gives people the opportunity to work in partnership with their neighbours, the police and other agencies and make a real difference to their community.
