Uttlesford Neighbourhood Watch

Together we are stronger

Who we are

Neighbourhood Watch is a large and successful crime prevention organisation.   It started in the UK in 1982, and would not have lasted that long had it not been so successful in keeping crime down.  Behind it lies a simple idea shared by millions of people: –  getting together with your neighbours to take action can cut local crime.

Neighbourhood Watch is a proven deterrent against crime and anti-social behaviour, so why not get involved now, and make Uttlesford an even nicer place to live.

On behalf of Uttlesford Neighbourhood Watch I hope you find this website helpful in making our part of Essex a safer and pleasant place to live, work and enjoy. There are links to the organisations that we are partnered with, as well as our national movement website www.ourwatch.org.uk
