Would you like to meet new people, get some exercise, and help keep your community safe?
We are looking for people over 18, from all backgrounds to join us as StreetWatch Volunteers.
StreetWatch is a community led watch scheme which allows you to make a difference where you live.
It is made up of groups of volunteers from our local communities who carry out street walks but have no police powers.
It allows local people to help improve the neighbourhoods they live in by walking their own streets and providing visible reassurance and appropriate engagement in local issues that matter most.
The groups are managed by a coordinator, who keeps a volunteer list, provides advice, guidance and support and is usually the contact that speaks with the local policing team. If you would like to become a coordinator, please speak to us after applying.
Becoming a StreetWatch Volunteer is a fantastic way to help keep your community safe, to meet new people in your community who share the same values, improve community engagement with the police, and to keep fit and healthy.
You will be provided with suitable training and high vis jackets before your first walk, as well as lamp post, window and wheelie bin stickers which can you display within your community.
As a Street Watch member, you will patrol your local area for at least two hours every month, at times which suit you. You will patrol in a minimum of two members, talk to people you meet and encourage them to take an active interest in keeping your area safe.
If the group sees suspicious activity, they will report it to the local policing team, but will not get involved.
