Safer Neighbourhoods Stronger Communities

Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Whether you're new to a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or you've been involved for years, we hope that you'll find something in this section to help manage your scheme.

There is no one way to run a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.  A Neighbourhood Watch should meet the needs of the community it serves.  Your watch may have regular meetings or only meet once a year.  You may stay in touch via e-mail, social media, a community noticeboard or a regular newsletter.

To ensure that you are always included in relevant alerts and information, please register with Neighbourhood Watch Scotland by signing up for alerts.

Here we hope to give you some ideas and guidance which may help you to operate your Neighbourhood Watch group efficiently and effectively.
