Neighbourhood Watch for Whashton

Whashton operates an active Neighbourhood Watch scheme in partnership with North Yorkshire police and has a network of Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators in place.

This scheme is an impotant component in combating rural crime and provides not only advice and assistance on crime prevention measures but also a structure for reporting incidents to the police and dissemination of information from them.

All householders know who their Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators are and should report any suspicious incidents, people or vehicles to them in the first instance.
