Streetwatch is about local residents promoting good citizenship and supporting a better neighbourhood by patrolling their own streets. They provide visible reassurance and appropriately engage in local issues that matter most to your community.
The presence and activities of Streetwatch members have a significant and positive impact on quality of life issues within your community. Street Watch members also liaise with local police to encourage positive information sharing and liaison.
Streetwatch is a way of reclaiming back our streets and open spaces from those who may wish to engage in activities that undermine our communities.
The purpose of Streetwatch is:
To prevent crime by increasing visibility and maintaining a caring and cohesive community.
To assist the police by promoting effective communication and the prompt reporting of activity.
To increase feelings of safety by promoting a sense of security and community spirit.
Streetwatch is run by local residents promoting good citizenship and supporting a stronger community.
The Streetwatch scheme is fully supported by Suffolk Constabulary.
