Neighbourhood Watch (NhW) in Langton Green is affiliated to the West Kent Neighbourhood Watch Association (WKNWA) which covers West Kent, the same area as West Kent Police. NhW is a way of developing close liaison between households in a neighbourhood, and between them and the local police. The aim is to help people to protect themselves and their properties, improve security, enhance vigilance and foster a neighbouring, caring spirit in communities.
There are at present twenty four NhW Schemes (or Watches) in Langton Green. Each Watch is looked after by a Coordinator, and the number of households vary from six to over one hundred. In very large Watches there may be one or more 'Link Coordinators.'
The Watches at present are:
What do Coordinators Do?
Being a Coordinator is not a great time-consumer and brings other benefits. You get to know those neighbours whom you had not met; insurance premiums are sometimes lower in NhW areas; it is satisfying that you are doing your bit to frustrate the bad guys. As with most things, you get out what you put in.
If your road is not covered by NhW why not do something about it.
NOTE: WE ARE CURRENTLY WITHOUT A NhW COORDINATOR FOR LG, so the individual LG street/area coordinators have been left to keep their communities aware of anything relevant (from the daily information they receive via eWatch).
